Massive Attack founder 3D has joined with Young Fathers to work on a new film score.
La Fête est Finie - which translates as The Party Is Over - satirizes attitudes towards climate change, and aired online at the weekend to coincide with UN talks in Paris.
3D supplies the score, with assistance from Young Fathers. Curiously, Pitchfork also notes that Forest Swords has also contributed to the project...
Check out a statement by director Mark Donne and 3D below:
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.
