Netflix will soon premiere the music documentary 'We Are One', a moving film that follows activists all over the world in their fight for justice via their participation in the music video for the song 'Solidarité'. An inspiring journey, this film tracks the project's inception and the efforts to put together such a far-reaching video, all while getting to glimpse the tireless work of those fighting for better tomorrows.

Here's everything you need to know about the documentary.

Release date

'We Are One' will release on July 14 via Netflix.

Plot

The music documentary will document the efforts of individual men and women who have suffered violence as they attempt to change the world. These activists from different walks of life all came together to participate in the music video 'Solidarité', a joint project between French and African artistes Matthieu Chedid, Fatoumata Diawara, Sidiki Diabaté, Ibrahim Maalouf, Toumani Diabaté, Oxmo Puccino, and Seu Jorge. 'Solidarité' is an extension of the Lamomali collective of musicians put together by Chedid in an effort to create a music-led activism project.

In particular, this nearly one-and-a-half-hour documentary will follow and explore the stories of five ordinary people who became heroes in their own right and symbols of resilience and hope for their communities after they overcame their own struggles and took on the mantles of bringing healing to those around them, advocating for social change and fighting injustice head-on.

Director

'We Are One' is directed by Stéphane de Freitas, known for his work on films like 2006's 'Infrarouge' as well as 2016's 'Le gros journal' and 'Quotidien', in collaboration with musicians Matthieu Chedid, Toumani Diabaté, Sidiki Diabaté and Fatoumata Diawara.

Trailer

Featuring clips from 'Solidarité' interspersed with commentary from the artistes and activists at the heart of this story, the documentary highlights the journey they went on in bringing the music video to life while using that as a backdrop to highlight their individual struggles as well as efforts to make the world a better place.
