A rousing documentary immersing viewers in the moving, personal journeys of seven grassroots campaigners from around the world as they attempt to harness the only force that can prevent catastrophic climate change: the will of the people.  

From decreasing biodiversity to indigenous land rights abuses, Not Without Us connects the dots between growing economic inequality, fossil fuel driven economies and government inaction in the face of the greatest crisis engulfing our planet.  Putting frontline communities’ perspectives at its centre, it powerfully conveys their call for deep, far-reaching system change.

A must-see portrait of frontline communities and activists who gathered in Paris in December 2015, fighting for the strongest possible climate deal while fearlessly exposing its limits. These are the voices defending the land and water in some of the most threatened places around the world, protecting the planet in the process — and it is the rare film that gives them such a compelling platform.”
