How to Fix the World?

A handbook of direct action where squatters, opponents of globalization and anarchists tell their stories. The world was fixed in the 1990s and 2000s, sometimes more succeeding and sometimes not so much. By using a lot of archive material, the film connects earlier generations of activists to today’s climate movements. Direct action will be important in the future too. If there will be one.
