RANKIN X Extinction Rebellion
Our wonderful partner, RANKIN, (director Jordan Rossi) joins forces with Richard Curtis to create a film for Extinction Rebellion demanding from leaders #WhereIsYourPlan to solve the Climate and Ecological Emergency.
As General Election season begins and marking six months since the UK Parliament declared an Environment and Climate Emergency, Extinction Rebellion - which has just celebrated its first year anniversary - is releasing a short film calling for everyone to demand their government's plan to address the crisis ... #WhereIsYourPlan
Through voices representing a lifetime, aged 8 to 80, the film demands that leaders around the world act on the climate and ecological emergency, including stopping the destruction of our forests, our oceans and our wildlife, reducing zero carbon emissions as a matter of urgency and investing in a green economy.
The concept behind this globally significant film - presenting the demands of the climate movement and extinction revolution - was developed by filmmaker Richard Curtis, and refined, shot and produced by RANKIN, an agency headed up by the British photographer and cultural provocateur of its namesake.
But the high profile support didn’t stop there ... featuring faces from Downton Abbey to Love Island, and including the likes of Ellie Goulding, Daisy Lowe, Jaime Winstone, Chris Packham, Imelda Staunton, Jim Carter and Stephen Frears, the video showcases a series of short clips where voices from every generation, representing a lifetime, make an emotive demand to governments for their plan to address the emergency.
Directed by Jordan Rossi of RANKIN, the film shows that despite our race, age or gender, people need to unite against the threat of the global warming crisis. No matter who you are, this is an issue that will affect everyone, and the video reflects our last shot at making a difference.
Now is the time for positive action on a scale as yet unseen. It’s time for the people in power to listen, and it’s time for them, as well as us, to act now, to protect all life on our planet.
