How to Blow Up a Pipeline

OT: How to Blow Up a Pipeline

Daniel Goldhaber // USA, 2022
Fiction Feature // FF2022



Based on the eponymous novel by Andreas Malm, this thriller revolves around the sabotage carried out by a group of militant ecological activists. People are gathering in the desert. They’re there to prepare a mission: some have already felt the effects of environmental pollution, others are frustrated climate activists for whom radical methods appear the only means of protesting against the climate catastrophe. Their plan is to sabotage a pipeline to knock the oil business off balance and thus ensure change, where other forms of resistance have already exhausted their usefulness. The film is a variation on a heist thriller and a psychological study of activists between personal concern, radicalisation and doubt.


DANIEL GOLDHABER (*1992) studied visual communication and environmental studies at Harvard University and lives in Los Angeles. His debut film Cam was shown at numerous festivals in 2018. His second film How to Blow Up a Pipeline had its premiere at the 2022 Toronto Film Festival.
