“CLIMATE JUSTICE!” takes a look at four groundbreaking cases – from Portugal’s “Youth 4 Climate Justice”, France’s “L’affaire du siècle”, the Netherlands’ “Urgenda” and Switzerland’s “Senior Women for Climate Protection Association” – by citizens who have come together to take legal action against their governments. This project tells the immersive story of a historic mobilisation that brings renewed hope for the future of the planet.
Using a direct cinema approach, CLIMATE JUSTICE! follows four intertwined stories, with the main thread of the narrative being the struggle of the young Portuguese members of “Youth 4 Climate Justice”, following their hearings before the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).
Faced with global warming and government inaction, more and more citizens are coming together in the fight to save the environment. Will justice and governments be up to this rendez-vous with history?
The project will be available as a web series of four 15-minute episodes and as a 52-minute documentary.
A co-production: SEPPIA & SERENA Productions
