Environmentally-friendly electric cars, sustainably-produced food products, fair production processes… Can our purchasing power help save the world?

In this tongue-in-cheek two-hander, Austrian director Werner Boote and German author Kathrin Hartmann meticulously unpick some of the most prevalent ‘greenwashing’ myths at play today. They take viewers on a round-the-globe tour of corporate hypocrisy, to the sites of catastrophic environmental disasters and shocking land rights violations – all of which are harming humans, animals and the planet despite the glowing promises of effective self-regulation.

Far from disempowering, however, this exposé of people’s limited choice as ethical consumers reminds us that the power of individuals does not lie in their wallets,  but in their actions and behaviours as voters, citizens and members of  communities.

Take One Action Film Festival – the UK Premiere of The Green Lie.


After the film there will be inspiring conversations and opportunities discussed regarding creative, effective personal action. Welcomed will be the film’s protagonist, environmental journalist and author Kathrin Hartmann, alongside Dorothy Guerrero, Head of Policy at Global Justice Now, and Louise Giblin from UNISON Scotland.

In association with UNISON and Global Justice Now.
