About Monthly Climate Cafe - Online film showing of The Green Lie

Be part of tackling climate change - join us for monthly films, guest speakers and discussions.

This month we will be hosting an online event: a film showing of the 2018 film The Green Lie, followed by an online discussion.

Environmentally-friendly electric cars, sustainably-produced food products, fair production processes… Can our purchasing power help save the world?

In his new documentary film, Werner Boote is joined by environmental expert Kathrin Hartmann as they explore whether many of the industries' "green products“ are nothing more than a "greenwashing" sales strategy.

Tackling some of our most current corporate crisis points along their global journey, they banter, debate and disagree whilst addressing the unseen costs that lie behind advertising myths: deforestation, displacement and injustice.

Far from disempowering, however, this exposé of our limited choice as ethical consumers reminds us that our power as individuals does not lie in just our wallets, but also in our actions and behaviours as voters, citizens and members of our communities.

Films are shown in partnership with Take One Action Film Festivals. Watch at home on Wednesday 3rd June, then join with others in the local community for our live post-film discussion.

This film has a certificate of 12+ and is English, and German with English subtitles
