Thank you Stephanie! Marion Cotillard appeared on Canal+’s Le grand journal earlier tonight. Together with Jane Birkin she talked about tonight’s Silent Gathering in support of Aung San Suu Kyi and there was also a bit of talk about the ‘Beds are burning’ video clip. She stayed on for the remaining of the discussion about the school system.
You can watch it online (Partie 2 as well as the very end of Partie 3) or in our video archive (the final part from Partie 3 is missing here though). If anybody has a HQ clip I could use to get good quality screencaptures please don’t hesitate to contact me, thank you!
Finally, it is here! The full-length song “Beds are Burning” with accompanying music video was unveiled at 3pm local time in Paris, France. Kofi Annan was joined by Mélanie Laurent, a good friend of Marion. She herself seems to have been absent from the event, so here a quote from Mélanie:
I’m supporting Kofi Annan’s initiative and hope this song will be heard by as many people as possible in the world before Copenhagen. This campaign will help secure a better future for our planet and upcoming generations. The time has come.

Be sure to visit Time for Climate Justice org to watch the full music video (also in HD) and to download the song. Remember, by downloading the song you’re signing the petition that will be handed to the world’s political leaders on December 7, 2009 in Copenhagen. The song is also available on iTunes.
Marion Cotillard’s voice can clearly be heard at around 1:31. There’s not much more footage of her in the video than we’ve already seen in the trailer, but the quality of these final captures are much better. Enjoy!

Thank you so much for all the nice comments you visitors are leaving here at the website all the time! It really encourages me to continue making this site better and more complete! Also my internet troubles seem to be over earlier than expected, at least I think so.
While we eagerly await the full video for ‘Beds are Burning‘ – the song to advertise the Tck Tck Tck Campaign for Time For Climate Justice – a new teaser as well as a ‘Marion Cotillard Tck Tck Tck Spot’ have hit the web. They’re both short but lovely – we also get to have a good look at Guillaume Canet in the teaser.

While the song ‘Beds are Burning’ for the Time for Climate Justice – Tck Tck Tck Campaign
is already available on MySpace (it seems that was only a temporary version, it has since been removed), the official launch date is October 1. During the previously mentioned press conference in Paris on October 1 the video clip will be unveiled and it is also as of October 1 that it will be available as free download on many digital platforms. Each click, download and listening will count as a “virtual musical petition” that will be presented to the political leaders of the world at the climate conference in Copenhagen in December.
