Grasp the Nettle
Dean Puckett / 2012 / UK / 91’

Grasp the Nettle follows the exploits of a ragtag band of activists in London as they struggle against corporations, government, police – and themselves – in an effort to create alternative communities outside consumer society. Filmmaker Dean Puckett went to live among the eclectic inhabitants of an eco-village in West London, who then move to the heart of London, occupying Parliament Square. It is an epic, inspiring and at times harrowing journey of discovery - following the homeless, the visionaries and eccentrics against a backdrop of economic and ecological crisis.
