Film + Talk

Political disenchantment was yesterday. 2019 will be remembered as the year of the "Fridays for Future" movement. Millions of people demonstrated worldwide, especially children and young people. Even without voting rights and seats in parliaments, they made themselves heard. "Now" accompanies Greta Thunberg, Luisa Neubauer and Felix Finkbeiner, asks them how they feel and ventures a look into the future of their activism.

Film talk: They are called climate rebels, but is it really rebellious to demand that politicians listen to scientific evidence and address the climate goals? A discussion at the intersection of activism, climate change, science fiction and society.

2019 has been clearly marked by thousands of school children going to strike over climate and environmental justice. They have found allies from all parts of the society, joined forces with scientists - all in all, demanding immediate action from governments worldwide. Science-fiction authors have written about the human impact on the environment for years, like Frank Schätzing describing the ruthless exploitation of the world's oceans by man and how nature would take its revenge in a mysterious and very effective way. 

Why not discussing a vision of the future, which does not include the reality of climate change?
