I AM GRETA
DOC NYC, Toronto, Zurich, Hamburg, Cologne, Hamptons, Chicago, Montclair, Hawaii, Stockholm
A portrait of Greta Thunberg’s meteoric one-year rise from high-school climate strike organizer to inspiration for a global movement.
The film is currently screening as part of DOC NYC’s Short List, for which our program notes read:
Greta Thunberg became famous for her viral videos confronting UN leaders over climate change. Swedish filmmaker Nathan Grossman offers a unique view of Greta’s personal history starting in August 2018 when she was 15 years old and scarcely known. As her notoriety rises, we watch Greta adapt to being both flattered and scorned by world leaders. The film culminates in a harrowing sailboat ride that Greta and her father Svante take over the Atlantic Ocean to attend two UN climate summits in September 2019. In I Am Greta, we bear witness to the emergence of a generational leader.
