89mins   2021   Germany   15   English | Spanish | Cantonese | Luganda   

With global protests on the rise, Dear Future Children is a film about the new generation at the heart of this seismic political shift. The film follows Rayen, who protests for social justice in Chile, Pepper, who fights for democracy in Hong Kong and Hilda, who battles the devastating consequences of climate change in Uganda.

Facing almost impossible odds and grappling with the staggering impact of their activism on their personal lives, the film asks these three young women why they keep fighting. A film about the next generation, made by the next generation.

'An impressive debut from such a young director, who is clearly marching in step with his progressive peers' - Phuong Le, Guardian
