What started off as a wishful project quickly turned into something huge, as Thunberg's actions and name started to resound around the world.
Viewers in the U.S. will have to wait until November 13th before being able to watch it.
Fight for climate change
Thunberg has become famous simply by being herself. And now, she's likely to become even more well-known thanks to the imminently-released documentary, I Am Greta.
The footage is a mixture of a documentary that shares Thunberg's views and actions over climate change, as well as a heartfelt coming-of-age movie about a young girl finding her path in life.
Thunberg has inspired myriad people around the world. She stopped going to school for an entire year so as to go on strike to gain attention for the climate. She's sailed across the Atlantic to go to a conference so that she doesn't have to fly in a plane. She's spoken at internationally-renowned conferences, and with heads of state around the world.
All to find a way to harness our attention to help her in the fight against climate change.
All of these actions and thoughts are outlined in Grossman's thoughtful documentary, giving you a proper rundown of exactly what Thunberg has achieved. But more than just a run-through of her so-called C.V., Grossman also captures the essence of this young woman and her inner battles as she goes through a tremendously inspiring, yet difficult, journey.
Millions of protestors around the world have joined Thunberg—a clear sign of her impact.
