Synopsis

UK GREEN FILM FESTIVAL


The UK Green Film Festival is an annual nationwide festival with the aim of bringing environmentally themed films to audiences across the UK. The Rio is delighted once again to be presenting this year's selection of outstanding and important films.


Environmentally friendly electric cars, sustainable produced food products, fair production processes: Hurray! If everything the corporations tell us is true, we can save the world through our purchasing decisions alone. A popular and dangerous lie. Are the industry's "green products“ nothing more than a sales strategy? In his new documentary film, Werner Boote shows us, together with environmental expert Kathrin Hartmann, how we can protect ourselves. They easily banter, they agree to disagree and ultimately bring freshness to a never-ending debate.


“Not quite a party political broadcast, so much as a call to arms. And a notch up from Al Gore's climate change documentary, AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH For THE GREEN LIE focuses on the need to take action – and owns that some of that action may not be entirely comfortable for those who have benefited from our current way of life.” Eye For Film.


The film is subtitled.
