Today, Global Citizen is a movement of millions — but a movement like that doesn’t just happen, it’s made.
“Louder Together: A Global Citizen Documentary; New York to Mumbai” offers an intimate look into how the Global Citizen movement has grown over the last six years. Since 2012, people around the world have tweeted, emailed, and called on world leaders to help end global poverty.
The two-part special captures the energy of the Global Citizen Festival, featuring performances from the 2016 Global Citizen Festivals in New York and Mumbai, and takes a behind-the-scenes look at the groundbreaking advocacy work Global Citizen does. But it also shows the power and impact that Global Citizens’ actions can have, as it follows one girl’s struggle to access clean water and sanitation at her school in Mumbai.
For those who have yet to attend the festival, “Louder Together” offers a chance to experience its world-changing energy. For those who have been, it’s a chance to re-live a powerful moment, and take a closer look at the impact Global Citizens’ actions are having on the world.
Narrated by Hugh Jackman, “Louder Together” also features never-before-seen interviews with and performances by Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, Metallica, Jay-Z, Coldplay, Usher, A.R. Rahman, and others. It takes viewers backstage to learn about what makes artists like Demi Lovato and Chris Martin Global Citizens, and will inspire the next wave of Global Citizens to take action.
Ryan Gall and Marcus Haney directed the project, which was executive produced by Hugh Jackman and Hugh Evans amongst others. The film is presented by Global Citizen, Hyde Park Entertainment, and Complex Networks.
The documentary will be available to stream for free in the US via Complex Media and Verizon’s Go90 platform on Sept. 13.
