Greta Thunberg

The movie’s description says: “In August of 2018, Greta Thunberg, a 15-year-old student in Sweden starts a school strike for the climate.

“Her question for adults. If you don’t care about her future on earth, why should she care about her future in school?

“Within months, her strike evolves into a global movement. Greta, a quiet Swedish girl on the autism spectrum is now a world-famous activist.

“The team behind Greta has been following the young activist from her very first day of school striking.”

I Am Greta

Thunberg discussed the film on social media. She said: “And just to be clear once again: I – nor anyone in connection to me – have or will not receive any payment for this.

“B-Reel Films will dedicate half of the film’s revenues to my foundation. And all of that will be donated to organizations and projects fighting for a sustainable world, defending nature and supporting people already facing the worst impacts of the climate- and ecological crisis.”
