The Green Lie

Documentary Film, AT 2018, 97 min, eOmdU

Palm oil, electric cars, soybeans: what tricks do major concerns use to paint their products as eco-friendly? What is actually hidden under the quality seal “sustainable”? Together with the “greenwashing” expert Kathrin Hartmann, Werner Boote sets off on a research expedition straight through the world to track down the production conditions of supposedly sustainable products. An impressive documentary with a lot of little, valuable insights into a big green lie.
