I Am Greta

dir. Nathan Grossman / 2020 / Sweden / 98min.
How a shy schoolgirl with Asperger’s became a prominent teenage activist.

The story of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg is told through compelling, never-seen-before footage in this intimate documentary from Swedish director Nathan Grossman. Starting with her one-person school strike for climate action outside the Swedish Parliament, Grossman follows Greta - a shy schoolgirl with Asperger’s – in her rise to prominence, and her galvanizing global impact as she sparks school strikes around the world. The film culminates with her astonishing wind powered voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to speak at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York City.
