Greta Thunberg Documentary Set at Hulu

Teenage climate activist was recently named Time Person of the Year

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg will be the subject of a new documentary at Hulu.

The film, “Greta” (working title), will be directed by Nathan Grossman and produced by Cecilia Nessen and Fredrik Heinig through B-Reel Films.

In August of 2018, Thunberg, a 15-year-old student in Sweden, started a school strike for the climate. Her question for adults: if you don’t care about my future on earth, why should I care about my future in school? Within months, her strike evolved into a global movement. Greta, a quiet Swedish girl on the autism spectrum became a world famous activist. 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.

The news was first reported by Deadline.

Thunberg was named as Time’s Person of the Year, the youngest ever to receive the honor. Earlier this year she gave a speech at the United Nations Climate Action Summit, where she strongly criticized world leaders for ignoring the climate crisis, which drew the ire of President Donald Trump.

“Greta” joins Hulu’s growing roster of documentaries including “Minding The Gap,” “Ask Dr. Ruth” and “Hillary.”
