In collaboration with the devoted work they do to “inform, engage and inspire audiences about the importance of protecting global biodiversity,” the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival (WCFF) organizes interactive events focusing on the environment. Every year for their festival, they showcase powerful work by the best filmmakers. A really good and touching example would be “Dream” by Zombie Studio.
In the animation, animals are singing the emotional song from Les Misérables, “I Dreamed a Dream”. The video begins with the wildlife living happily in their untouched habitats; we can see a blue whale breaching, a brown pelican skimming the water, a rhinoceros running with her calf and a pair of baby harp seal playing in the snow.
After only a couple seconds, the video completely changes into a sinister scene where powerful men invade each habitat. The animals are now the target of their guns, clubs, harpoons and pollution and it tragically end with the seal pup singing: “Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.”
It was back in 2016 that Zombie House created the video to promote the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival. Even if it’s now a few years old, the award-winning film still resonate in people’s mind, always a much-needed reminder that we should not “let the dream go extinct.”
“Dream”—a heartbreaking video by Zombie Studio—critically endangered animals sing “I Dreamed a Dream” by Les Misérables.
