New Cinema Release date for "NOW" on 26 August 2021

There is a new nationwide cinema release for NOW on 26 August 2021! The committed climate documentary sensitises viewers to the issues of climate protection, sustainability and the future shortly before the next global climate strike and the federal elections. In his film debut, cult photographer and director Jim Rakete meets six young climate rebels from Generation Greta, including Luisa Neubauer (Fridays for Future), Felix Finkbeiner (Plant for the Planet) and Nike Malhaus (Ende Gelände). Why did they become climate activists? What is at stake? Support is provided by punk legend Patti Smith, auteur filmmaker Wim Wenders and many more.
