Amnesty International: Your Signature Is More Powerful Than You Think

‘Your Signature Is More Powerful Than You Think’ is the well-known theme of Amnesty International. And is often used in campaign videos. This is the latest.
Amnesty is celebrating again the association’s process of mobilisation and its backbone in contributions: the signatures of supporters.

The film follows the ominous course of a persecuted protestor: arrest, detention, physical cruelty but mainly focusing on the release once thousands of pens petition to release the man from his incarceration.

The soundtrack, performed by Paolo Nutini (Iron sky), features a short excerpt from Charlie Chaplin’s speech from The Dictator providing a singular depth and meaning to the film.

The atmosphere in this latest version is a little too industrial, artificial is maybe the right word. Luckily the agency used music with a human touch.
