Environmental Conscientious Protectors: A Story of Rebellion Against Extinction

Conscientious Protectors puts you right in the middle of the beginnings of the Extinction Rebellion movement. The film follows the founding members of the non-violent direct action climate change group XR, from their first public meetings in October 2018 through to their shut down of London in April 2019.

Conscientious Protectors: A Story of Rebellion Against ExtinctionWith unrestricted access, director Leigh Bloomfield and Producer Jeff Emerson followed key members of  Extinction Rebellion as they have demanded that governments around the world acknowledge Climate Change as a global emergency. One that needs to be addressed with the same seriousness as war, famine and natural disasters.

In October 2018, Leigh received a letter through his letterbox (yes a physical letter not an email) from Extinction Rebellion to attend one of their evening meetings.  At that meeting he was introduced to Roger Hallam and others, where they gave talks on the state of the environment and the climate crisis the world is facing, and how civil disobedience has been used to great success through out history to change the tide on many important issues.  Having never been involved with movements or protests before, Leigh felt compelled to film and document this movement and see how far they could go. Leigh describes himself as an Environmentalist and connected strongly with the passion he saw in that meeting, their passion for more action to be taken for our environment.   The only thing he didn't know "Was civil disobedience going to work in this day and age?" Conscientious Protectors is his answer to the question.
