Storyline

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. 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 ...

Great, Transformative makes you reconsider
5 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We live in a world well poised for a change. Our path up until this point has been one of a Take, Make and Waste society. Planetary draws our attention to the behaviors of the past and ask's what are we do do now. The behaviors of the past, if they persist, will lead us to an inevitable outcome. However we have a choice to treat each other and the beautiful world we share with the respect and consideration that each of us deserve.

It is beautifully done, never placing blame or condemning past actions. It simply shares the beauty that is planet earth and our share connectivity. I enjoyed it immensely and will watch it again.
