This film will be viewable for 24 hours from showtime above.
In 2018, 15-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg held a school strike outside her country’s Parliament building in Stockholm. At first, she sat alone, handing out information and answering questions. Slowly, others began to join her—and within months she had sparked a worldwide movement. Helmed by Swedish director Nathan Grossman and featuring never-before-seen footage, I AM GRETA offers a personal and inspiring glimpse inside Greta’s path to becoming an internationally known environmental activist. Greta, who has Asperger’s Syndrome, impresses everyone from UN delegates, to Pope Francis, to Hollywood A-listers with her intricate knowledge of climate issues and unwavering dedication. However, as Greta’s celebrity grows, so does her frustration with politicians who won’t heed her warnings about climate change. The film culminates with her extraordinary wind-powered voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to speak at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York City. As she tells the UN, “The world is waking up, and change is coming whether you like it or not.”
