This documentary by cult photographer Jim Rakete follows the generation of young climate rebels who have had enough of empty words and ineffective declarations of intent. Swedish schoolgirl Greta Thunberg rises to become the leading figure of a worldwide movement that uses civil disobedience, strikes and demonstrations to shake up the general public and rapidly gain influence. Governments are finally taking notice. Director Jim Rakete asks some of the most prominent faces of the climate rebellion about their motives. Six young climate activists have their say, including Luisa Neubauer (Fridays for Future), Felix Finkbeiner (Plant for the Planet) and Nike Mahlhaus (Ende Gelände). Why did they become activists? What is at stake?
