Eilish is hosting a multi-day event focused on climate, also called overheatedwhich will take place at The O2 in London this month around the artist’s concerts there.
The new film, from the Sage Foundation, is described as “a startling commentary on the climate anxiety currently sweeping the world.and the unwavering determination of today’s prominent activists who intend to use their influence to turn anxiety into action.”
from today, The documentary appears on WeTransfer’s WePresent platform for 72 hourss and then it will be available online. It will also be shown at this month’s Glastonbury Festival, where Eilish will headline.
Alongside Eilish, Eavis, and Yungblud, Yassa Khan is starring directed by Girl In Red, Finneas, Vivienne Westwood, and more.
Naza Al-Aqija, the film’s executive producer and founder of the Sage Foundation, said: “This documentary brings together some of the world’s most prominent figures in music, fashion and climate activism, but most importantly amplifies the first-line voices of climate change, which often go unheard. Indigenous peoples protect and nourish more than 80% of the world’s biodiversity, yet they represent only 5% of the world’s population. They understand, know and protect nature better than anyone else. This film is an opportunity to share their stories.”
Director Yassa Khan added:Capture the inspiring and emotional sounds of this wonderful collection, a diverse and diverse group of people talking about the most important issue of our time, it was an honor he would never reciprocate. After making this movie, I’m optimistic.”
“I am honored to be a part of this beautiful documentary, which artistically touches on our urgent global scope of interest, our shared trauma and responsibility,” said Maggie Bird, Billie Eilish’s mother who also appears in the film.
The frenetic six-day event will take place June 10-12 and June 16, 25 and 26 to coincide with the UK and Ireland tour of the singer’s World Tour “Haber of Ever” (remaining tour tickets can be found here).
Overheated will bring climate activists, musicians and designers together in venues across The O2 “to discuss the climate crisis and the work they are doing to make a difference,” according to a press release. All profits from sales of Overheated tickets will be donated to Support + Feed and REVERB. Maggie Bird, Support + Feed.
