`THE GREEN LIE´ IS A BOX OFFICE HIT IN AUSTRIA !!!

 

SHORT SYNOPSIS 

 
Environmentally friendly electric cars, sustainable 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 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.
