The story of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg is told through compelling, never-before-seen footage in this documentary following her rise to prominence and her global impact as she sparks school strikes and protests around the world.
Starting with her one-person school strike for climate action outside the Swedish Parliament, Grossman follows Greta - a shy schoolgirl with Asperger’s – in her rise to prominence and her galvanizing global impact as she sparks school strikes around the world, culminating in her astonishing wind powered voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to speak at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York City.
Screening as part of our Great Big Green Week season, in partnership with Leicester City Council.
