It’s our time!


From Paris to Warsaw via Berlin, a European tour of the militant movements led by the younger generations.

Lucid, indignant, committed: for a growing fraction of today’s youth, it is urgent to act. Against the deadly way of life of past generations that precipitated the climate crisis, against social inequalities and discrimination, against a globalized economy to the point of absurdity, whose irruption of the coronavirus has more than ever highlighted its flaws.

In this film, ZDF journalist Aline Abboud gives the floor to young Europeans who are committed to moving the lines. In France, she meets Priscillia Ludosky, a figure of the “Yellow Vests” movement, and Assa Traoré, an anti-racist activist. In Poland, she met with progressive, pro-LGBT activists such as the artist Daniel Rycharski, who are facing the rise of nationalism and conservatism in their country; and in Germany, with the “Generationen” foundation, which intends to influence institutions in order to make the voice of the younger generations heard, particularly on climate issues.
