In one of our most moving constitutional lawsuits, 21 American youth, ages 14 to 25 and from diverse backgrounds, decide to take on the world’s most powerful entity, accusing the U.S. government of or violating their constitutional rights to life, liberty, personal safety, and property. Their argument? America, through it willful actions, has created a climate crisis future generations will inherit. Christi Cooper’s film follows the dramatic story of Juliana v. The United States of America. (U.S., 2020, 110m)
