Climate change activist and TIME Person of the Year Greta Thunberg will reportedly be the subject of her own Hulu documentary.

The doc, tentatively titled Greta, will chronicle the 16-year-old’s quick rise, including highlights like her address to the United Nations Climate Action Summit. It will be directed by Stieg Larsson and produced by Cecilia Nessen and Fredrik Heinig via B-Reel Films.

The director and his team followed Thunberg for the past 18 months, which included her Nobel Peace Prize nomination and her journey across Europe and North America. It will debut on Hulu in the summer of 2020.

“She embodies youth activism,” TIME editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal said last week. “Her rise in influence has been really extraordinary. She was a solo protester with a hand-painted sign 14 months ago. She’s now led millions of people around the world, 150 countries, to act on behalf of the planet, and she’s really been a key driver this year taking this issue from backstage to center.”

Thunberg — who famously does not fly to reduce her carbon footprint — recently arrived home via train, posting about it on Twitter.
