Documentary: I am Greta - free preview in Dutch cinemas for students under 17
Students up to the age of 17 in the Netherlands have the opportunity to go to the cinema for free on Friday October 16 to see the documentary I Am Greta, about the life and work of the climate activist Greta Thunberg. With many primary and secondary school students on school holidays this week, the timing is ideal.
