I Am Greta Overview

An intimate documentary that takes an up-close look at Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg.

With never-before-seen footage, the film follows Greta–a shy student with
Asperger’s–for over a year, starting in August 2018, when the 15-year-old begins a one-person school strike for climate justice outside the Swedish parliament. She asks: "Why would I need an education if there is no future?" Within months, her strike evolves into a global movement. It culminates with her wind-powered voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to speak at the UN Climate Summit in New York.

But why does her father worry? How does she do at school? What does she miss when away from home? Quote: When asked if she suffers from Asperger’s, Greta says, “I wouldn’t say suffer from, but I have it.”
