Flight to Paradise celebrates the first step towards a cleaner future. The Paris Pact which aims to curb global warming to less than 2C (3.6F) by the end of the century was signed by nearly 200 countries in December 2015. “I believe this moment can be a turning point for the world,” President Obama said in a press conference, and called the agreement “the best chance we have to save the one planet that we’ve got.” Flight to Paradise reveals, under a cloud of smoke, a bird standing on a barb wire waiting to take flight. The silohuette of a man in bright color yellow represents the power we have to change the world. A stained and polluted world has become our legacy. Unless we take action, the cloud of smoke will close upon us to a point of no return.
