Kid Warrior Fights Climate Change

Filmmaker Vanessa Black profiles a young warrior leading the fight against climate change. At only 14 years old, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez is the youth director of Earth Guardians, has taken on major oil companies, and inspired young people in 25 countries to take action.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society. Know of a great short film that should be part of our Showcase?
