Theatrical release of "NOW" postponed due to Corona

Due to the corona lockdown from 2 November 2020, the cinema release of "NOW" has been postponed to 28 January 2021. Should the cinemas remain closed in January, the film will be released alternatively in the W-film Online Cinema on Vimeo at vod.wfilm.de from 28 January 2021. For a good cause: The closed cinemas can inform their viewers about the online offer and the distributor W-film will share 50 per cent of the revenues with them. The film is offered exclusively for rent for €7.99. In his committed documentary, cult photographer Jim Rakete meets the young generation of climate activists. A film that encourages imitation. Quite deliberately – so that the youth of today also have a future tomorrow.

More about the film

"If you fail, we will never forgive you!" Angrily, the generation of young climate rebels appeals to adult reason and makes 2019 the year of their protest. The reason: our future is threatened by global warming. The Paris Climate Convention of 2015? A hollow phrase, if they have their way! The Swedish student Greta Thunberg becomes the leading figure of a worldwide movement that uses civil disobedience, strikes and demos to shake up the general public and rapidly gain influence. Finally, governments are also paying attention. Director Jim Rakete asks some of the most prominent faces of the climate rebellion about their motives. He infects us with their tremendous energy and thirst for knowledge. They all have their goals clearly in mind. Because whatever must happen: it must happen now!
