Keira Knightley Narrates Short Animated Film About Climate Change

“This explains the climate change aspect in a no-nonsense way – though the message is horrifying to hear.”

A new short film titled Climate Crisis, and Why We Should Panic has just released, which is the second piece of a two-part explainer video series by Extinction Rebellion that explains the effects of the world’s climate and ecological crisis. Written, directed and animated by Miritte Ben Yitzchak, the project stars the voice of Keira Knightley who narrates throughout the entirety of the visual.

In the two-minute clip, Knightley explains “what’s causing climate change, why governments must enter crisis mode to tackle this issue and what will happen if we don’t do something about it now,” according to a press release. “I wanted to speak out in support of Extinction Rebellion. Lending my voice to the most urgent issue of our time felt like the right way for me to take a stand in the hope that we can leave a world worth living in for our children,” the actress stated. “Climate change and the ecological crisis are two sides of the same problem. This animation explains the climate change aspect in a no-nonsense way – though the message is horrifying to hear.”

Watch Climate Crisis, and Why We Should Panic above and the first part, Extinction Emergency, and Why We Must Act Now, below. If you’d like to get involved with the movement, head on over to Extinction Rebellion’s website for more information.
