From the creators of the award-winning short film OVERVIEW comes this new feature-length documentary film PLANETARY, making its formal launch on April 22, 2015. The filmmakers share,
“We are in the midst of a global crisis of perspective. We have forgotten the undeniable truth that every living thing is connected.
PLANETARY is a provocative and breathtaking wakeup call – a cross continental, cinematic journey, that explores our cosmic origins and our future as a species.
It is a poetic and humbling reminder that now is the time to shift our perspective. PLANETARY asks us to rethink who we really are, to reconsider our relationship with ourselves, each other and the world around us – to remember that we are PLANETARY.”
“In a stunning visual exploration, the film interweaves imagery from NASA Apollo missions with visions of the Milky Way, Buddhist monasteries in the Himalayas, and the cacophonous sounds of downtown Tokyo and Manhattan.
PLANETARY features inspiring interviews from renowned experts including astronauts Ron Garan and Mae Jemison (the first African-American woman in space), Indigenous elder and grandmother Mona Polacca, celebrated environmentalist Bill McKibben, National Book Award winner Barry Lopez, scientist and writer Janine Benyus, anthropologist Wade Davis, National Geographic Explorer Elizabeth Lindsey, and Head of the Tibetan Buddhist Kagyu school, the 17th Karmapa.
They, and other noted cast member-interviewees — including my friend and colleague, Lawrence Ellis of Paths to Change (he’s in the trailer too!) — shed new light on the ways our worldview is profoundly affecting life on our planet.” (Source: Weareplanetary.com).
