One and done.

by Syd Briscoe

Concern: “1Planet4All” - 60s

Dutch director Fons Schiedon attempts to shift the conversation around climate change with this snappy outing for Concern. The charity want people to engage with the climate crisis as a human issue, focusing on destroyed crops, homes lost to wildfires, and ever-increasing famines rather than the ice caps melting.

Of course, said ice caps are still very much a pressing issue—however, the emphasis on suffering communities is likely to inspire empathy and encourage the young activists of tomorrow to get involved. Schiedon's zippy visuals embody the change in tone well, with animated flares amplifying news footage from around the globe.
