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 wake-up 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.

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. They shed new light on the ways our worldview is profoundly affecting life on our planet.
