F Rated Film
Monday 12th December 2022

Dir. Eve Wood, UK, 2022, 117 mins.

The Felling – An Epic Tale of People Power is a first-hand account of an extraordinary and shocking tale, where Sheffield citizens from 18-90 years old rise up and become modern day heroes by putting their bodies on the line to stop the destruction of their city's healthy street trees and help save the Planet from climate Armageddon.

A true David-and-Goliath story about how a community of determined residents in one of Europe’s greenest cities, battled peacefully with a powerful city council, a giant multinational corporation and the police that come to chop down their beloved street trees in the middle of the night, as part of a massive £2.2 billion private contract to maintain their city's highways.

When an injunction threatens peaceful protesters with bankruptcy and imprisonment, ordinary citizens are forced to ask themselves the crucial question: How far am I prepared to go to save a tree?

"A masterclass in non-violent direct action" - Green Party Sheffield

"By capturing the struggle in Sheffield, The Felling film acts as a rallying cry to tree campaigners and nature protectors all around the country." - Paul Powlesland, Lawyers For Nature

The film will be introduced by members of the STRAW campaign to Save the TRees of Armada Way. For more information visit:
