Please join the Germanic & Slavic Studies Department and the Environmental Studies Program for the first of our Fall film series! NOW, directed by cult photographer Jim Rakete in his film debut, is a documentary that shows how young activists from around the globe such as Felix Finkbeiner (Plant for the Planet), Luisa Neubauer, Greta Thunberg (Fridays for Future) and Vic Barrett (Youth v. Gov) are currently challenging the status quo and pushing for social and political change. NOW focuses on these young protagonists and the question of what it feels like to be an activist, and what is at stake for them.
This screening is in partnership with the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, as part of the Germany on Campus event series. Pizza and beverages will be served.
