“One More Voice” captures people all over the world asking viewers to add their voice to Amnesty International’s fight against torture, the death penalty, unjust imprisonment, violence against women and other human rights abuses. This short compelling video — featuring an activist in Egypt’s Tahrir Square and the late Martina Correia, sister of Troy Davis, who was executed by the state of Georgia in 2011, despite serious doubts about his guilt — is narrated by three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep with an anthem specially written for Amnesty International’s 50th anniversary by Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer and composer Lorne Balfe. The International Quorum of Motion Picture Producers and photographers at Magnum Photos contributed their talents to encourage people to unite around the cause of freedom, human rights and dignity around the world. The trailer for One More Voice can be watched at Youtube and AmnestyUSA.org.

Then, there have been news about a possible second new narration job – “A Fierce Green Fire” explores how the issues of conservation, saving whales and stopping dams built into an international movement, from grassroots to global activism. It chronicles the growth of the environmentalism over five decades, including the Love Canal pollution scandals, the proposed dams in the Grand Canyon, Chico Mendes fighting the deforestation in the Amazon, the Greenpeace movement and other signature moments and movements in environmental activism. In a recent interview with the Petaluma Patch, director Mark Kitchell points out that the film is not quite ready for general release. “There are three main tasks to do,” he said. “We have to finish licensing the archival footage and music, which can be quite expensive. We plan on having five narrators, from Robert Redford to Meryl Streep. And we’re working on an ending that’s a call to action for today’s activists.”
