Description of Film:
A film about interdependence, weaving imagery from NASA Apollo missions with footage from Buddhist monasteries in the Himalayas, along with interviews with astronauts, environmentalists, anthropologists and National Geographic explorers, Planetary is a film about interconnection. We are in the midst of a global crisis of perspective. We have forgotten the undeniable truth that everything 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. PLANETARY is a poetic and humbling reminder that it’s 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. Original Soundtrack by Human Suits
