Behind the scenes

Brief synopsis

Global protests are on the rise. Historic demonstrations in Chile and Hong Kong, school children striking all over the world. Who are the young leaders and activists behind this seismic political shift? „Dear Future Children" is a documentary about the new generation bringing attention to topics which have been under reported for too long. The film explores the impact of activism on their own lives and their personalities and explores the challenges of activism and the motivation of why they keep going nevertheless.(https://dearfuturechildren.com/)
