Finite: The Climate of Change (2022)

An eye-opening documentary that takes viewers deep into the heart of the climate movement. Directed by Rich Felgate, the film provides an insider’s view of direct action, revealing the raw, authentic, and emotional battles waged by concerned citizens in Germany and England.

At its core, the film focuses on the urgent fight against new coal mines. These mines threaten to exacerbate climate change and irreversibly damage the environment. The protagonists—ordinary people turned activists—put their bodies on the line to halt these destructive projects.

In Germany, where the scars of coal mining run deep, we witness passionate protesters standing up against powerful fossil fuel corporations. Their determination to protect the planet drives them to occupy mine sites, chaining themselves to machinery, and facing arrest. Their commitment is unwavering, even as they clash with security forces and confront the moral dilemma of risking their freedom for a greater cause.

Meanwhile, in England, a similar battle unfolds. Communities rally together, forming a David-and-Goliath alliance against the coal industry. Their grassroots efforts gain momentum, drawing attention to the urgent need for sustainable alternatives. The film captures their resilience, camaraderie, and the emotional toll of their activism.

As the tension escalates, we witness the clash between frontline communities and corporate interests. The film doesn’t shy away from the complexities—highlighting the economic dependence on coal, the livelihoods at stake, and the urgent imperative to transition to cleaner energy sources.

“Finite: The Climate of Change” serves as a powerful call to action. It challenges viewers to confront their own roles in the climate crisis and consider the sacrifices made by those fighting for a sustainable future. Through intimate interviews, stunning visuals, and unfiltered emotions, the film leaves an indelible mark—a reminder that the fight against climate change is everyone’s responsibility.
