(Vimeo Direktclimate, via Motionographer)

„Coalition of the Willing“ ist ein kollaborativer Kurzfilm über die Möglichkeiten des Netzes im Kampf gegen den Klimawandel. Und neben dem super Anliegen sieht der Film auch noch unverschämt gut aus und ist um ein Vielfaches interessanter, als sich das sowieso schon anhört. Toll!

‘Coalition of the Willing’ has been Directed and produced by Knife Party, written by Tim Rayner and crafted by a network of 24 artists from around the world using varied and eclectic film making techniques. Collaborators include some of the world’s top moving image talent, such as Decoy, World Leaders and Parasol Island.

The film offers a response to the major problem of our time: how to galvanize and enlist the global publics in the fight against global warming. This optimistic and principled film explores how we could use new Internet technologies to leverage the powers of activists, experts, and ordinary citizens in collaborative ventures to combat climate change. Through analyses of swarm activity and social revolution, 'Coalition of the Willing' makes a compelling case for the new online activism and explains how to hand the fight against global warming to the people.
