Fondation Abbe Pierre x JonOne
Ten years ago we collaborated with legendary graffiti artist JonOne, Award-winning director Martin Fougerol of Alex & Martin fame and the great teams at BDDP Unlimited / Les Presidents t create the music for this great film for the Abbe Pierre Foundation in Paris. The film celebrates JonOne's graffiti work and Abbe Pierre's legacy through his work and his 1954 call to arms, reaching out to the people of France to help the homeless in the cold weather... Sadly, ten years have passed and this call to arms is more relevant than ever. Reach out to https://www.fondation-abbe-pierre.fr/ (France) and https://www.crisis.org.uk/ (UK) if you want to help. The film was directed by Martin Fougerol, produced by COSA Films and Jean-Gabriel Becker composed and produced the score and re-interpreted Abbe Pierre's 1954 speech for this wonderful project.
