Global audio network Squeak E. Clean Studios Creative Director Simon Lister has teamed up with the United Nations to launch the intergovernmental organization’s 75th Anniversary film. Written and directed by Lister, and edited by Andrew Holmes, the film spotlights priority global concerns uncovered by the world’s largest survey on the public opinion of climate change, which the UN launched in January 2020. Squeak E. Clean Studios also crafted the music and sound mix on the film.

Juxtaposed against photos and footage of the trials populations faced in 2020--globe-spanning fires, the coronavirus pandemic, riots, warfare, and more--the powerful film leads with the UN’s original survey question: “If you could choose one thing to say to the UN, to world leaders, about the future, what would that be?” Within boardrooms, classrooms and congressional halls, the film showcases a diverse range of audiences’ top answers and challenges, from fighting climate change and increasing global sanitation to decreasing conflict and violence, and many others,  escalating into a crescendo of optimism and hope for society’s future worldwide.

Says Lister, “The great thing about this project is we could obtain content from those who go to the most polarised regions of the world to take these incredible photographs and footage. It was a humbling experience for us to find and feature the work of a whole community of international storytellers. Collaborating with these amazing artists to tell a global story, we hope the film elicits and provokes the urgent attention of our world leaders.

“Teaming up on this important project with film editor Andrew Holmes, my amazing composer Jessie Watt and producer Emma Hodge of Squeak E. Clean Studios, meant that we could put our creative skills to good use collaborating on a project with the potential to inspire meaningful change and hope for a better future.”
