The Dutch-Indonesian Melati Wijsen (20) has been taking action against plastic pollution for years and with great success; at a young age she managed to clear the island of Bali from plastic bags.

Together with Melati, a powerful generation rises with the goal of restoring the world. Bigger Than Us shows Melati's intriguing and moving journey where she meets other young changemakers who dedicate their lives to a better future. They are committed to, among other things, human rights, the climate, freedom of expression and access to education and food. From the favelas of Rio to remote villages in Malawi, on makeshift boats on the coast of Lesvos Island to Native American ceremonies in the mountains of Colorado. At a time when everything seems to be falling apart, these young changemakers show in an inspiring way that everyone can make a difference for a better world.

Bigger Than Us by director Flore Vasseur was co-produced with Marion Cotillard and was selected for the Cannes Film Festival in a special climate program.
