Unfortunately Lena Andres is unable to be here tonight and sends her regrets.

The story of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg is told through compelling, never-before-seen 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 student 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 extraordinary wind-powered voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to speak at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York City.

Courtney Tosh Background

Courtney Tosh is a student in her first year of environmental studies at the University of Winnipeg. She attended her first climate strike in February of 2019 and has since been drawn to climate organizing out of compassion. She helped to organize the Winnipeg climate strike on September 27th  that drew a crowd of 15 thousand people.

Reviews

In its quietest moments, I Am Greta finds the very real person underneath the public activist, an inside look that shows how dedicated Thunberg is to her ideals. She wants a better world for everyone...and always seems open to the tough stuff, no matter the cost.
-IndieWIRE
It will stir the spirit and absolutely inspire your deep admiration for this devoted and steadfast teenager, and her commitment to real change and political accountability.
