The short film entitled Guardians of Life is kicking off worldwide right now across all platforms to make viewers aware of the website www.mobilize.earth.
We learn from the press release: “XR created a script for a punchy two-minute film in Los Angeles last October which will be released today globally before the Oscars and was directed by Shaun Monson, featuring Joaquin Phoenix, Rosario Dawson, Oona Chaplin, Adria Arjona, Albert Hammond , Q'orianka Kilcher, and Matthew Modine.
The film resulted from a collaboration between Extinction Rebellion and the advocacy group Amazon Watch. The short film marks the beginning of a new outreach strategy aimed at engaging a broader public and getting viewers to participate on a more visceral level with emotions and topics related to the climate and ecological emergency (CEE).
Moving forward, it is likely that other A-listers will take part in further short films dealing with different aspects of the CEE such as species extinction. This could be the first significant step in Hollywood tangibly dealing with the threats we face globally.”
This film is raising funds for Amazon Watch and Extinction Rebellion. Mobilize Earth is the public name of Project Earth 2025 ©, a non-profit organization working toward a thriving future for all. Now is the time to mobilize, to act as individuals, build bridges, find common ground, come together, and demand action. GoSee mobilize.earth

Extinction Rebellion, Restless Development and Staging Change will partner with VAULT Festival for a new ‘Time for Change’ venue, an installation open throughout the festival to inspire festivalgoers to demand change for people and the planet. Extinction Underground (Saturday 22 Feb 10.30pm – 3.00am) is an interactive and immersive late-night underground playground celebrating and showcasing the unstoppable creativity and community of Extinction Rebellion and the wider climate movement.
Beneath the streets of London, more than 80 artists, performers, radicals, headlining music acts, luminaries, and gardeners of the human spirit will come together with vital acts of co-creation, artistic expression, connection to the planet and one another: acts of celebration, grief, love, transformation, and resilience.
Dance, play, create, and discover first hand the booming community behind the disruptive actions that draw attention to the climate and ecological emergency, and how artists and rebels are responding to our unprecedented times.
Extinction Underground: “It may feel like the end of the world. That politics is broken. That all hope is lost. Now is the time to come together and build a better world. Extinction Underground is an interactive and immersive late night playground responding to the climate and ecological emergency. An array of artists, performers and radicals are coming together with vital acts of co-creation, artistic expression, connection to the planet and one another. Let us take you on a journey where rebellion, protest and the arts meet: an interactive, disruptive and moving spectacular of grief-stricken expressions and world-building visions of the future – with a circus, drag, DJs, flash-mobs, processions, art-making stations, UV face-painting, karaoke, and even the opportunity to admit your carbon confessions to a priest.”
Headline acts include DJ sets by Edwin Congreave of FOALS and Fay Milton of SAVAGES, The Umbrella Academy star ROB SHEEHAN, and slam-winning spoken word artist TANAKA FUEGO. Bring garments and bags you want to print with the iconic messaging and images unique to Extinction Rebellion.
Tickets £10, with the option to make a donation to Extinction Rebellion when booking. Book here: vaultfestival.com/whats-on/extinction-underground
About - Extinction Underground presents a wide movement of artists and activists responding to the climate and ecological emergency. Many have responded to Extinction Rebellion’s (XR) call to reimagine their role in response to this crisis. XR is a global movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and minimize the risk of social collapse. It is the fastest growing social movement of history, and within its first year has mobilized people in over 70 countries, with nearly 500 local groups worldwide. Culture Declares, Music Declares and other international movements and groups have since formed, with artists from Radiohead to the National Theatre declaring a climate and ecological emergency and taking necessary and radical action for climate justice.
Extinction Rebellion is just one part of an incredible and growing community of rebels and artists who together are building a creative response to the climate and ecological emergency. In addition to Extinction Rebellion’s commitment to creating disruption through mass civil disobedience, as artists, we are also committed to telling the truth, bringing people together, and to demonstrating the future we want to see through beautiful creative actions and community building.
