Mohammed Great movie!
Nicolas Truly wonderful, very impactful.
Why did Italy win (oh, I can understand) How does Greta stand in the Corona-crisis? She links our 'use' of animals to it?
Vera Do you feel Greta and her family were acting genuine and natural when you were around?
Margit van Tuijl Greta's perseverance is admirable. Did you also sometimes worry about Greta's health? And if so, how did you deal with that?
Studium Generale TU/e If you have any questions for director Nathan Grossman, you can ask them in the chat now.
Rosalie Someone critiqued how Greta might not understand the complexity of this existential crisis. How do you feel about this critique?
Monique So powerful - and so painful to watch at the same time, to see Greta being stuck between her beliefs, her atypical brain, the craziness, politics... Was it ever painful for you, being this close to her for such a long time, to see things happen as they happened?
Rosalie How did Greta impact your life and your views on this crisis?
Nicolas The film goes through several different emotions, alternating between hope and despair and, at times in between. What would you say was the message you wanted to convey through this film?
Top Great documentary !Is he still in contact with Greta?
Silvia Green Week Team - When it came to planning this documentary, what did you want to achieve with it? Apart from just telling her story?
Martina Who was this documentary thought for? Did you have an ideal spectator?
Jordy What was it like shooting a film on such rough sea's?
Nikki M After following Greta and all her actions for so long, did this change your perspective on climate change? And what changes did you make in your own life?
Jordy Also, I just wanted to say that I very much enjoyed the intimate, sometimes even quirky moments, that Greta displayed. Those made this already very personal account even more special to me.
Lou what are your plans for the future?
Mohammed Does greta show any admiration to a certain character or even a politician?
Silvia Green Week team - In what way has Greta inspired you during the time your were filming?

After the screening, there’ll be a live Q&A session with director of the film Nathan Grossman. He started following Greta from the very beginning, before she gained international fame. The entire film is 99% shot by him, which has resulted in a very intimate and close-up view of Greta’s fight. He will speak about this extraordinary process and answer questions from the audience.

The story of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg is told through compelling, never-before-seen footage in this intimate documentary from Swedish director Nathan Grossman. Starting with her one-person school strike supporting climate action outside the Swedish Parliament, Grossman follows Greta—a shy student with Asperger’s—in her rise to prominence and her galvanizing global impact as she sparks school strikes around the world. The film culminates with her extraordinary wind-powered voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to speak at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York City.
