Environmentally friendly electric cars, sustainably produced food, fair production: Hooray! The big companies would have us believe that we can save the world just by buying the right stuff. But this is a widespread and dangerous lie. In his latest documentary, Werner Boote joins forces with Katharina Hartmann, an expert in greenwashing, to explore how we can fight back against this lie.
Werner Boote studied Theatre Arts, Media Studies and Sociology at the University of Vienna and Vienna Film Academy. After working as an assistant director for some years he started making his own films. In 2009 his first cinema documentary “Plastic Planet” was released in Austria and was subsequently screened in over 80 countries. His film “Population Boom” (2013) won the Green Me Award in Berlin Film Festival. He directed “Everything’s Under Control” (2015) which is about how surveillance has become par for the course in our society.
