About the Film
A film 11 years in the making, "Youth Unstoppable" documents the struggles and events of the largely unseen and misunderstood Global Youth Climate Movement. At age 15, filmmaker Slater Jewell-Kemker began attending environmental summits, camera in hand, wide-eyed and ready to make a difference. From flood ravaged villages in Nepal to luxury hotels in Cancun, from the tailings ponds of the Alberta Tar Sands to the riots of Copenhagen, culminating with the intense and defining events at the 21st UN Climate Change Conference in Paris, "Youth Unstoppable" shows us a powerful vision for the future of our planet and the young people who will lead us there.
