EXCLUSIVE: Oscar winner Orlando von Einsiedel (White helmets, Virunga) last documentary short, From the devil’s breath, will be broadcast as part of The tipping point, the next docuseries from Time Studios, Trevor Noah’s Day Zero Productions, Sugar23 and P&G Studios were announced in July, which focus on the rapidly evolving developments that promise to reshape our world.

The climate change documentary produced by Leonardo DiCaprio tells the unlikely first-person tale of two remarkable colliding tales: that of the community of survivors of the deadly 2017 wildfires in Portugal, struggling to ensure that what they lived could never happen. again, and a groundbreaking, world-changing scientific discovery that could help protect us all from the climate emergency.

From Devil’s Breath recently completed an Oscar qualifying theatrical release and was also screened as part of the IDA Documentary Screening Series, highlighting the most acclaimed documentary films of the year.

DiCaprio has produced with Emmy and BAFTA winner Chloe Leland and two-time Emmy nominee Harri Grace of Grain Media. Jennifer Davisson and Phillip Watson of Appian Way have produced with Ian Orefice and Alexandra Johnes of Time Studios. The film’s original song, “Hope For the Future,” was written by five-time Brit Award winner and Grammy nominee Bastille. Other notable contributors to the project include Emmy-nominated composer Patrick Jonsson and Pulitzer-Prize-winning photographer / photojournalist Lynsey Addario.

From the devil’s breath is one of the most compelling first-person stories about climate change and what can be done to affect the future, ”said Orefice of Tie Studios,“ and we are delighted and honored to present the film in the frame of The tipping point.

“As a father with a young son, it was a deeply moving film to make,” said Von Einsiedel. “Witnessing how the climate emergency destroys countless lives left a visceral mark on me and forced me to think seriously about the world we are building. But at the same time, it was also an extremely inspiring film to make. Seeing the resilience of people like Nadia Piázza and Vitor Neves rebuilding their lives after unimaginable tragedy, and discovering the potential of the restoration movement to be a key part of the solution to the challenges of the climate crisis, filled me with optimism. I am very proud of the film we made and delighted to be working with Time Studios and the team at Appian Way to release it to the world.

“Collaboration with Orlando on From the devil’s breath was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up, ”added DiCaprio. “This important story is compelling, powerful and timely, and I am proud to be a part of it. Our planet is facing an undeniable climate crisis and I hope this film will spark conversation, inspire us to act, and help us come together to reinvent our future. “

The team behind From the devil’s breath will seek to engage audiences, away from the screen, through a social impact campaign, which will amplify the work of film contributor Dr. Tom Crowther and Restor, his new free online platform for global catering. Supported by the United Nations and the World Economic Forum, Restor is described as Google Maps for Nature – connecting the public to frontline restoration projects around the world and bridging the gap between climate crises and nature-based solutions. . The impact campaign is produced by Project Impact, the award-winning team behind the previous Cinema For Peace and Sundance Audience Choice Award winners, and will launch alongside the film this fall at COP26.

The film is screened twice at the Climate Change Conference, once in partnership with Voice for Nature and the London Natural History Museum, and once for the UNEP Generation Restoration Film Festival. Each screening will be accompanied by a Q&A with Von Einsiedel.
