“I Am Greta” Post-Screening Conversation with Adults on the Spectrum, 11/22/20, 2:30 PM – 4:00 PM ET
November 22 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm, Free
DESCRIPTION: AANE will be offering free access to the film “I Am Greta” along with hosting a post-screening conversation with adults on the autism spectrum who have followed their passion!
The story of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg is told through compelling footage in this intimate documentary from Swedish director Nathan Grossman. Starting with her one-person school strike for climate action outside the Swedish Parliament, Grossman follows Greta – a shy student with Asperger’s, in her rise to prominence and her galvanizing global impact as she sparks school strikes around the world. The film culminates with her extraordinary wind-powered voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to speak at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York City.
Today, her #FridaysforFuture movement has organized climate strikes on every continent except Antarctica. As she tells the UN, “The world is waking up, and change is coming whether you like it or not.”
