Theatrical release of "NOW" postponed again to 11 March 2021
No less than six young climate activists have their say here, including Luisa Neubauer (Fridays for Future), Felix Finkbeiner (Plant for the Planet) and Nike Mahlhaus (Ende Gelände). Why did they become activists? What is at stake? The climate documentary, conceived by scriptwriter Claudia Rinke, deliberately encourages imitation – so that the youth of today also have a future tomorrow! Support is provided by punk legend Patti Smith, auteur filmmaker Wim Wenders.
More about the film
"If you fail, we will never forgive you!" Angrily, the generation of young climate rebels appeals to adult reason and makes 2019 the year of their protest. The reason: our future is threatened by global warming. The Paris Climate Convention of 2015? A hollow phrase, if they have their way! The Swedish student Greta Thunberg becomes the leading figure of a worldwide movement that uses civil disobedience, strikes and demos to shake up the general public and rapidly gain influence. Finally, governments are also paying attention. Director Jim Rakete asks some of the most prominent faces of the climate rebellion about their motives. He infects us with their tremendous energy and thirst for knowledge. They all have their goals clearly in mind. Because whatever must happen: it must happen now!
