I Am Greta

I Am Greta

Nathan Grossman

Overview

By now, many of us are aware of climate change and the dire threat it poses to the future of our planet. But what are we doing with that awareness? Are we or our leaders really acting like people trying to avert an imminent disaster?

This is the question that spurred Greta Thunberg, at the age of 15, to start protesting in front of the Swedish parliament building. Since then, Greta has become the most recognizable face of climate activism, both praised as a determined fighter for the planet's future, and denounced as a dangerous alarmist.

Filmmaker Nathan Grossman has previously worked on Swedish documentaries about such subjects as politics, soccer, and the ethics of eating meat. What began with Grossman filming Greta at the start of her protest turned into an intimate year-long chronicle of her rise to global prominence, its personal toll, and the continuing importance of her message.

"We have not taken to the streets for you to take selfies with us and tell us that you really admire what we do. We children are doing this for you to put your differences aside and start acting as you would in a crisis."
