The Forum
  • International Competition
  • Eco Crisis in the Time of Climate Change
Synopsis In times of rampant populism and growing mistrust of the elite, director Marcus VETTER accompanies the 81-year-old founder of the controversial World Economic Forum over a period of two years, as he works to achieve his mission: to improve the state of the world. When Klaus SCHWAB writes a letter to climate activist Greta THUNBERG after her appearance at the WEF 2019, a dialogue between the generations starts. Can Klaus SCHWAB‘s vision bear fruit and can the WEF contribute to solving global problems? Or is it just another part of the problem and ultimately serves the interests of the global elite?
