"Submit the earth to you!" This imperative is deeply ingrained in the texture of our western globalized world. To date, no environmental protection movement has managed to change this. Nature is still in the best case a resource released for exploitation, in the worst case the best place for a landfill. On its journey around the world, the film meets scientists, lawyers and activists who want to radically change the way we encounter nature. To this end, nature's rights must first be enshrined in constitutions worldwide as an inalienable and enforceable fundamental right. "Rights of Nature" is not only a Tour d'Horizon, but also a precise inventory of a highly exciting environmental movement with its challenges, opportunities and first successes. – Jan Sebening
