“One More Voice” features narration by three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep and an anthem specially written for the video and Amnesty International’s 50th anniversary by Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer and composer Lorne Balfe.
The film captures individuals from all over the world — from an activist in Egypt’s Tahrir Square to student members of Amnesty International in Los Angeles — asking viewers to add “one more voice” to the fight against torture, the death penalty, unjust imprisonment and violence against women — Amnesty International’s core issues. Among the activists shown in the video is the late Martina Correia, sister of Troy Davis, who was executed by the state of Georgia last year. Correia was a tireless advocate in her brother’s case and against the death penalty.
Produced by Citizen Group in San Francisco, “One More Voice” is a collaborative project that features contributions from new and established directors through a partnership with the International Quorum of Motion Picture Producers. Production took place in countries on six continents, including Egypt, Abu Dhabi, Australia, Hong Kong, Kenya, the Czech Republic, Ecuador, Hungary, India, Switzerland, Sweden, South Africa and a number of U.S. cities.
Photos depicting the worldwide struggle for human rights were donated for the video by Magnum Photos, courtesy of the Magnum Foundation. The contributors want to inspire a new generation of activists to join Amnesty International’s life-saving work. It will be distributed widely on a variety of social media outlets.
