#ShowtheLove is a new short film that features actors Jeremy Irons and Maxine Peake who have joined forces in this powerful video meant to inspire us to protect the people, places and life we love from climate change for generations to come.
Former children’s Laureate and ‘War Horse’ author Michael Morpurgo, also helped create this beautiful five-minute film. Jeremy said: “So much we love is still under threat from climate change. December’s historic agreement in Paris might lead some people to believe that the job is done – but Paris simply set the direction of a journey we must now all take together.
“I took part in this film to show my love for the world that climate change threatens. My grandchildren won’t be safe and secure unless we take proper care of our one and only planet. Climate change is hitting the world’s poorest people first and worst – so we owe it not just to our own families, and to families everywhere, to act fast to protect them. By watching and sharing this film, we can spread the message that if we act together, it’s not too late to build a cleaner, fairer future.”
Carroll Ballard (The Black Stallion, Fly Away Home) directs the exciting story of 12-year-old Xan (Alexander Michaletos), who decides to return the cheetah he raised from a cub to the wild instead of allowing pursuers to place it in captivity. Harsh South African landscapes, stalking lions, crocodiles, river rapids and a mysterious drifter (Eamonn Walker) who may intend to turn the big cat in for cash – all will test Xan’s courage and resolve. Join him in this tale of growing up and letting go. It’s a journey you won’t want to miss.
