The Global Poverty Project
United Nations HQ, September 2015
Fifty Nine Productions has produced a short film with Richard Curtis in association with the Global Poverty Project, the United Nations and NASA, to mark the launch of the UN’s new Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
The film explores the idea that the best way for us to ensure the future safety of the planet is to think about the fact that the whole Earth is our home. Drawing on interviews with past and current astronauts, the film uses material from NASA’s extensive archive to show the Earth as viewed from space over the course of the last fifty years.
The film will be broadcast world wide as part of the coverage of the Global Citizen festival in Central Park, and will be screened to world leaders in the United Nations General Assembly.
