An Epic Tale of People Power.

?The Felling is a David-and-Goliath story about how a small group of residents in one of Europe’s greenest cities battled to stop a powerful city council and a giant multinational corporation from chopping down thousands of healthy street trees as part of a massive £2.2 billion private contract to maintain the city's highways.

?What started as a local protest, soon attracted national and international support. As the stakes increased with threats of bankruptcy and imprisonment, ordinary citizens were forced to ask themselves the crucial question:
How far am I prepared to go to save a tree?

?Filmed over two years, this is an extraordinary and shocking first-hand account of what happened on the tree-lined suburban streets of Sheffield.
