We recently reviewed the activist documentary film ‘Dear Future Children’; the feature-length debut of 22-year-old German film director Franz Bohm.

After seeing the film we caught up with Franz and discussed what made him tell the three stories in the film in particular and what he’s hoping the film will achieve.

We were particularly interested in the story of the  Ugandan climate activist Hilda Flavia Naka’s fight to raise awareness about climate change in her country.

Franz explained how passionate he is about activism and in particular reflected on the media’s role in amplifying the work of activists and how they sometimes sensationalise their activities.
