Hulu will premiere a documentary chronicling the rise of 16-year-old climate alarmist Greta Thunberg in 2020. The film with the working title, Greta, will follow Thunberg from her August 2018 school strike in Stockholm to her chastising world leaders. Nathan Grossman is directing, and Cecilia Nessen and Fredrik Heinig produce via B-Reel Films. It’s set to premiere sometime in 2020, according to a report by Deadline,
Deadline added that sources say Hulu had joined the project “awhile back and had been involved behind the scenes while deals were being made.” The team behind the documentary has been following the activist from when she was allegedly just a student skipping school in Stockholm, Sweden. Thunberg began her climate activism in August of 2018 by staging a school strike every Friday.
“Her question for adults: if you don’t care about my future on earth, why should I care about my future in school?” reports Deadline.
Breitbart writes, “not too long after that, Thunberg’s public profile exploded as her so-called activism went from skipping school to scolding world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly, at which she proclaimed, ‘I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean, yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you?'”
In a public statement in November, Greta said that the “climate crisis is not just about the environment.
“It is a crisis of human rights, of justice, and of political will. Colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and fueled it. We need to dismantle them all.”
Earlier this month, Thunberg was chosen as TIME’s “Person of the Year.”
“Thunberg has been getting messages of support from Michelle Obama and has been embraced by Hollywood, with celebrities such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Leonardo DiCaprio and Woody Harrelson among her army of fans. As her popularity continues to grow, Thunberg was featured in Saturday Night Live’s cold open this past weekend, portrayed by the show’s star Kate McKinnon,” reports Deadline.
