Youth v Gov is the story of America’s youth taking on the world’s most powerful government. Since 2015, 21 plaintiffs, now aged 13 to 24, have been suing the USA government for violating their constitutional rights to life, liberty, personal safety and property through their willful actions in creating the climate crisis young people will inherit.

Youth v Gov is about more than just a lawsuit. It is the story of empowered youths finding their voices, and fighting to protect their rights and our collective future. This is a revolution designed to hold those in power accountable for the past and responsible for a sustainable future. And many of the movement’s leaders aren’t even old enough to vote - yet.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with our Young Programmers in conversation with Youth Vs. Gov director Christi Cooper and two of the young plaintiffs, Levi and Vic.

With thanks to Barrelmaker Productions and Vulcan Productions.

An eye-opening documentary that focuses on the world’s current climate crisis, directed by scientist and filmmaker, Christi Cooper.
