Stanley Kubrick offers a glimpse of what our world was like before man and his evil ways started to interfere.
Likewise, in each episode, Sunrise Earth's producers position their high-def cameras at the brink of dawn in a lush natural setting, usually in a national park or along side a body of water. Then, as the sun rises over a one to two hours period, the show chronicles how Earth and nature (birds, animals, weather conditions) co-exist at this marvelous time of day.
Like Kubrick's "Dawn of Man," Sunrise Earth lets the high-def pictures do the talking. There is no narrator getting in the way, only an occasional graphic reveals the location and the time of day. It's a powerful technique. By eliminating the human altogether, Sunrise Earth makes you feel like what you're seeing could be what you would have seen hundreds of years ago. It's nature unplugged.
