“NOW” A Film for Climate Justice by Jim Rakete https://now.wfilm.de/ “If you fail, we will never forgive you!” The generation of young climate rebels angrily appeals to the common sense of adults and makes 2019 the year of their protest. The reason: the future of all of us is threatened by global warming. The 2015 Paris Climate Agreement? A hollow phrase if you have their way! The Swedish student Greta Thunberg is becoming the leading figure of a worldwide movement that is shaking the general public up with civil disobedience, strikes, and demos and is rapidly gaining influence. The governments are finally listening. 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 has to happen: it has to happen now! “NOW” by Jim Rakete is the film for the longed-for green change! In his committed film debut, the famous cult photographer meets Generation Greta. Six young climate activists speak up here, including Luisa Neubauer (Fridays for Future), Felix Finkbeiner (Plant for the Planet), and Nike Mahlhaus (Endegebiet). Why did they become activists? What is at stake? The documentary devised by screenwriter Claudia Rinke encourages imitation. Quite consciously — so that today’s youth also have a future tomorrow. There is support from punk legend Patti Smith, author and filmmaker Wim Wenders, and many more.
