Emily James, UK 2011 [12A], 88 mins

Emily James spent a year within the environmental movement documenting
the clandestine activities of the major players. In this feature
documentary, she presents an insider's account of the new global
movement, an independent group funded by volunteers; inspiring,
anarchic individuals with inventive strategies challenge the multi-
nationals, frustrate the police and create confusion. This film shows
what one group of committed individuals can achieve.

Gabrielle Tierney, Ireland/UK 2009 [12A], 30 mins

Nine men were totally acquitted of their £350,000 criminal damage to
the International Arms manufacturer in Derry in 2006. The decision
became a legal benchmark; an act of deliberate civil disobedience
recognised as a weapon in the fight for peace. This film documents the
victory and their solidarity with the people in the Lebanese town of
Qana; knowledge of the production of those weapons and their use in
the Israeli massacre became an impetus for the men to act.

Discussion led by Emily James, Gabrielle Tierney and Anne-Marie
OíReilly, Outreach Co-ordinator, Campaign Against Arms Trade
