Little Warriors is a powerful documentary that is a hopeful look at groups of kids who are trying to make climate change a thing of the past, rather than a somber look at how much global warming has grown as an issue. The film follows a Jim, who teaches kids about the threat of climate change and the science behind it. He vows to empower these kids to spark beneficial change for the earth by muting the power of climate change. The film follows groups of kids who have been taught by Jim and how they end up making a difference in their community. I believe kids will be inspired by seeing their peers' hard work and how it pays off as something that they might never see the benefits of in their own lifetime. Its 20 minute runtime zooms by and I was a little sad when it was over. I like seeing all the different kids testifying on behalf of climate change. The editing is quite good. I give this film 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to ages 5 to 18. I highly recommend it for inclusion in the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival, especially for those looking for environmental films.

Indiana is not known for reckoning with the scientific reality of climate change. Quite the opposite, in fact. The state does not have a climate action plan, nor does any individual city. In early 2016, a group of young people in central Indiana, from ages 9-20, began the process of crafting a Climate Resilience and Recovery Resolution. With the help of elected and appointed officials, this intergenerational initiative resulted in Indianapolis becoming the largest city in the country to pass a youth-led resolution addressing climate concerns, and promising carbon neutrality and the creation of a Climate Action Plan for the city.
