“This film shares…awe-inspiring imagery of the natural world – testament to cinematographer Christoph Ferstad – and sense that the hive of humanity is out of balance with it.” —The Austin Chronicle

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 wake up 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, with intimate interviews from renowned experts including astronauts Ron Garan and Mae Jemison (the first African American woman in space), celebrated environmentalist Bill McKibben, National Book Award winner Barry Lopez, anthropologist Wade Davis, to National Geographic Explorer Elizabeth Lindsey, and Head of the Tibetan Buddhist Kagyu school, the 17th Karmapa. They shed new light on the ways our worldview is profoundly affecting life on our planet. (C) Planetary Collective/Abramorama/IMDb
