Greta to Hulu

A Swedish documentary about 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg will be aired on Hulu in 2020. The film, working title Greta, will follow Thunberg’s life from the international school climate strike that she helped organize and promote in August 2018 through its evolution into a global movement.

“The team behind Greta has been following the young activist from her early school strike in Stockholm all the way to parliaments and massive international protests, documenting her mission to make the world understand the urgency of the climate crisis,” reads a statement from Hulu. 

Along the way, Thunberg faces opposition from some of the world’s most powerful climate change deniers, including President Donald Trump himself.

 

The documentary is directed by Nathan Grossman and produced by Cecilia Nessen and Fredrik Heinig of B-Reel Films.

 

Thunberg was recently named Time magazine’s Person of the Year for her work in climate activism. The 16-year-old activist’s cover story irritated President Trump, who tweeted, “So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!” 

 

By way of  response, Thunberg changed her Twitter bio to, “A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.”

 

In addition to being crowned Time’s person of the year, Thunberg has collected several other accolades, including a fellowship of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society and a nomination for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize. Her work has attracted support from the likes of Michelle Obama, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Woody Harrelson and Leonardo DiCaprio.
