Storyline

Earth's environmental crisis--brought about by uncontrolled technological progress--is endangering life on a global scale. At the core of the threats to the planet - wars, overpopulation, pollution, and the depletion of natural resources - is the inadequacy of the nation state to come to terms with the surmounting problems of twentieth century living. What is urgently needed is the kind of international cooperation where nation states relinquish part of their sovereignty to a world body entrusted with the management of mankind's future. Written by Art Seidenbaum

The finest Ecological film I have ever seen.
5 June 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

There is no film quite so man-humbling as "Survival of Spaceship Earth," produced for the first ever United Nations Conference on the Human Environment. Director/writer Dirk Summers has created an astonishing film that, even today, must still be the most significant Environmental Documentary ever produced. It should be on the "must see" list for anyone who cares about planet Earth. The New York Times said of this landmark film, "If brains are washed theatrically, we call it propaganda ("JFK"). If minds are cleared of painful debris, we begin to recognize art. "Survival of Spaceship Earth" is art."
