His Epic Message Will Make You Want to Save the World

As the human population continues to grow, so does our impact on the environment. In fact, recent research has shown that three-quarters of Earth’s land surface is under pressure from human activity. In this short film directed by Spencer Sharp, spoken word artist Prince Ea makes a powerful case for protecting the planet and challenges the human race to create a sustainable future.
