Event Details

Dear Future Children explores how three young women in Hong Kong, Chile and Uganda cope with the staggering personal impact of their political activism. A film about the next generation, made by the next generation.

With global protests on the rise, Dear Future Children is a film about the new generation at the heart of this seismic political shift. We will watch as Rayen protests for social justice in Chile, Pepper fights for democracy in Hong Kong and Hilda battles the devastating consequences of climate change in Uganda. Facing almost impossible odds and grappling with the staggering impact of their activism on their personal lives, we will be asking these three young women why they keep fighting.

The screening will be followed by a 30 minute Q&A with the films director, Franz Bohm.
