I AM GRETA
The film is about the currently most famous environmental activist who started her fight for climate change with the sentence “My name is Greta and I want you to start panicking!”.
If she hadn’t been direct, probably no one would have taken her seriously because, according to her father Svante, who is her main companion on travels and activist activities, she knows about climate change more than 97% of world politicians.
Greta has a self-confidence that adults would envy her, and she found something she decided to fight for, and that is the future of the planet.
