Tentatively named Greta, the documentary will chronicle the meteoric rise of the young climate activist who, during her short lifetime, has addressed the United Nations Climate Action Summit, held her own against the now impeached President Donald Trump, and has been embraced by celebrities including Leonardo DiCaprio, a fellow climate activist.
The documentary will be directed by Nathan Grossman and produced by Cecilia Nessen and Fredrik Heinig via B-Reel Films. The team has been following Thunberg for the past 18-months, which includes her early days of climate-strike school walkouts in Sweden to being nominated for a 2019 Nobel Peace Prize. Additionally the film will include the advocate’s journey across Europe and North America as she continues to spark international conversation.
