Description

When director Nathan Grossman filmed a solitary 15-year-old climate change protestor across the street from the Swedish parliament in 2015, no one—especially him—had any idea that a few years later she would be so famous that her given name alone would be enough to conjure up images of her battling self in the minds of millions around the world. But it soon became obvious that this remarkable young woman was indeed something special, and Grossman was there every step of the way, as Thunberg, with her father/minder Svante in tow, took the world by storm. The result is a remarkable, personal portrait of a remarkable person.

‘It’s not just being in the right place at the right time that makes Grossman’s portrait of Thunberg such an absorbing watch… What is so compelling is the picture I Am Greta pieces together of Thunberg herself. Because this isn’t a climate change issue film in the mould of An Inconvenient Truth or Before the Flood, although it also puts that message across in the course of a stirring screen journey… This is essentially an uplifting, inspirational story about a girl with Asperger’s who turns her difference from “normal kids” into a strength.’—Lee Marshall, Screen
