Grasp the Nettle follows the exploits of a ragtag bunch of land rights activist in London as they struggle against corporations, government, police - and themselves - in their efforts to create alternative communities outside the framework of consumer society. When an eco-village pops up on a piece of disused land in West London, film-maker Dean Puckett gives up everything - his flat, job and normal life - to live among its inhabitants. Shot over three years after the 2008 banking collapse Grasp the Nettle is an intimate exploration of the rise and fall of two radical social experiments. In the process, it asks hard questions about the nature of freedom and the meaning of activism in interesting times

“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
