The Green Lie

A film by Werner Boote

“When you shop with a conscience, you don’t save the world, you save the corporations”

Environmentally friendly electric cars, sustainably produced food products, fair production processes: Hurray! If everything the corporations tell us is true, we can save the world through our purchasing decisions alone! A popular and dangerous lie. Are the industry's “green products” nothing more than a sales strategy? In his new documentary film, Werner Boote (Plastic Planet, Everything's Under Control) shows us, together with environmental expert Kathrin Hartmann, how we can protect ourselves. They easily banter, they agree to disagree and ultimately bring freshness to a never-ending debate.
