Banksy & Idris Elba Present #WithSyria

Banksy & Idris Elba Present #WithSyria


On the third anniversary of the civil war in Syria, Banksy and Idris Elba have teamed up on a short animated film. Dubbed #WithSyria, the nearly 2-minute video features the English street artist’s iconic stencils intercut with facts about the war, alongside Elba’s distinctive voice. Elbow’s “The Blanket Of Night” provides the soundtrack for the film, which calls for this to be the last anniversary of the conflict in Syria.

From the #withsyria website:

"The #WithSyria campaign will launch in thirty five countries as we approach the anniversary of the Syria conflict on the 15th of March, amassing an unprecedented popular movement in solidarity with those caught in the conflict. A collective appeal will be launched by global organisations and key individuals calling on political leaders to sign up to a pledge to do everything they can to make this the last anniversary marked by bloodshed.

A series of actions will highlight the call built around the global release of “With Syria” balloons by children from around the world, the lighting up of iconic buildings, messages of solidarity from high profile individuals, and a campaign video taking inspiration from Banksy’s image of hope.
