NOW! - A future under threat debated in a special session at LEFFEST’20

Back
In support of the resilience and courage of a new generation of rebels fighting for a green revolution, LEFFEST presents a special screening of NOW! (2020), directed by Jim Rakete, followed by a debate.

In a world that is on the verge of ecological collapse, it has never been more crucial to raise awareness to the importance of fighting climate injustice. NOW, the film debut of cult photographer Jim Rakete, accompanies a generation of young environmental activists who appeal to adults for common sense. The reason: our future is threatened by global warming. The director talks with some of the most prominent faces of the climate rebellion, of which, Swedish student Greta Thunberg, who has risen to become the leading figure of the worldwide movement that has shaken up the general public with civil disobedience, strikes and demos. Supported by punk rock legend Patti Smith and filmmaker Wim Wenders, the activists raise their voice.

The session will take place next Sunday, the 22nd of November, at 9:30 am at Teatro Tivoli BBVA. The screening of the film will be followed by a debate with Acácio Pires, a member of the environmental association ZERO; Joana Barrios, actress; Duarte Marques, Extinction Rebellion activist; and Bianca Castro, activist of the Student Climate Strike.
