Massive Attack‘s 3D, aka Robert Del Naja, has teamed up with Young Fathers to soundtrack a new short film, La Fête Est Finie (The Party Is Over).
The short, starring Fiona O’Shaughnessy (Channel 4’s Utopia) and Natasha O’Keefee (BBC’s Peaky Blinders”), has been released to coincide with the COP21 summit in Paris, reports Pitchfork.
Del Naja and the film’s director, Mark Donne, have released the following statement about the film:
“The consequences of failure are absolutely catastrophic, but that didn’t prevent the previous twenty Conferences of Parties doing precisely that.
“As with any party, the skill is in knowing when to leave. For decades fossil fuel extracting trans-nationals and Western governments have continued to dance and partake long after the bright lights of climate science evidence were switched on and the deafening music of denial had its plug pulled. …
“There must be a legally binding deal on emissions reductions. The poorer nations on earth must receive the support they desperately need from the rich, so they can prepare for the damage caused by climate change and invest in clean technologies to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
“This film is a cultural contribution to the global public atmosphere that now demands that these imperatives are achieved by our governments.”
