Greta Thunberg Climate Change Documentary

A Documentary Following Greta Thunberg's Climate-Change Movement Is Heading Our Way in 2020

The climate crisis was at the forefront of the mainstream consciousness this year, with Greta Thunberg cementing her place as the young face of the movement. The 16-year-old Swedish climate activist — who kicked off a climate change movement after skipping school in August 2018 — left her home country to travel the world and spread her climate activism message, inspiring an entire generation in the process.

Thunberg hasn't returned to school since. In 2019, we watched as Thunberg spoke at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York City in September, was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in March, and was named Time's Person of the Year in December.

So if 2018 was the year Thunberg started a movement, and 2019 was the year she took it global, then it appears 2020 is when we'll get a closer look at the inner workings of her activism — straight from the source. According to Deadline, a documentary centreed on Thunberg is in the works. We can expect it to arrive on the US streaming platform Hulu next year.

The documentary — which has the working title Greta — is produced by Cecilia Nessen and Fredrik Heinig, with B-Reel Films, and is directed by Nathan Grossman. The team has reportedly been following Thunberg since the early days of her school strike, right up to when Time revealed her to be its Person of the Year. The documentary will not only serve as a fascinating look behind the curtain of Thunberg's activism, but will no doubt also help continue to spread her important message.
