A MESSAGE OF HOPE FROM GRETA AND THE POPE
Conceived in lockdown, and totally crowdsourced, the film is made from voice notes sent in from a variety of the most trusted humans on the planet, and the pictures are made from thousands of donated images sent in from citizens on every continent.
Our hopes for this film
Research has found we rarely take the time to imagine what a better future could be like. So we thought we’d make a film that helps these conversations begin. This film asks anyone, from world leaders school children, to visualise what needs to change and then to talk about it.
We’ve made this one minute film so it can speak to a single individual or an entire government. We hope it will help individuals think about the future they want, meetings get off to good starts and motivate people to share their hopes for the future, and start to make that future happen. We want it to be a catalyst for a better world.
It’s been beautifully scored by legendary composer Max Cooper (in binaural sound) and
animated by award-winning experimental filmmakers / artists the McGloughlin brothers.
This film has been made possible by support from the Planetary Emergency Partnership, WWF, Avaaz, Conservation International, FOLU, Global Commons Alliance, The Club of Rome, Nature4Climate, The Nature Conservancy, Climate & Sustainability, and Gower St. Additional individual donation from Noëlle Poncelet and Sandrine Dixson-Declève have helped to make this possible.
Gripping Films specialises in making films to create change – they’ve won over 30 international awards for their films with David Attenborough and others and have been nominated for an Emmy with their films for the BBC, PBS and National Geographic screened to the UN and EU Parliaments. Last year their viral short film “Nature Now” featuring Greta Thunberg was seen 70 million times, won two Webbys—and most importantly was critical in helping push high level global action in protecting nature to tackle climate change.
