What we (the public) know about Greta Thunberg's personal life is limited. Our knowledge of her spans the range of the speeches she has delivered at climate conferences and events such as the United Nations Climate Summit, and the fact that she will not travel via aviation, which she iconically proved on her trip across the Atlantic via sailboat when she attended the UN Summit in 2019. Now, we're offered a deeper look into the 17-year-olds prolific life and work so far, with the Hulu documentary, which is the first feature-length film on Thunberg and will for the first time, provide insight into what her life is like off stage.
What is it about?
The film is set to document moments from Thunberg's life over the course of a year and was partly filmed during her journey from Sweden to the US to attend the aforementioned UN Summit. From Swedish school striker to prolific speaker in the course of a few months is enough to pivot one's life for good. Considering Nathan Grossman, the film's director joined Thunberg on board her voyage, we're promised to catch a glimpse of what Thunberg's life has been like as she embarks on her transatlantic journey and rises to notoriety.
When will it be released?
The film is set to release towards the end of the year and is scheduled to air in cinemas October 16 in the UK, Europe, North America and Australia ahead of its November 13 digital release on Hulu in the U.S.
Below, we catch our first glimpses of the already moving account of what we'll be in for, documenting her speech in Sweden before setting out for the US, and her time at sea before arriving.
