Pre-selection: “The Forum”

For the first time in the 50-year history of the World Economic Forum, an independent camera crew was able to shoot behind the scenes of the huge event.

“Our movement is strong because it shows the powerful that they abandon their children. It’s time for everyone, including yourself, to finally react. “Letter from Greta Thunberg to Klaus Schwab, founder of the WEF.

Can Klaus Schwab´s vision for the Forum really contribute to solving global problems? Or does it actually worsen the issue by promoting the self-interest of a global elite?

The doc thriller by Marcus Vetter with sound design from Karl Gerhardt and Jonas Schüler and mixing by Jörg Höhne, is nominated for “Best Documentary” for the German Filmpreis 2020.
