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 ...

A State of Awe
5 October 2015 | by marijnkool-1See all my reviews

Unity is a hard-to-grasp concept in this divided world of nations and conflict. For me, this documentary, more experiential than intellectual, conveys its message with a strong clarity and accessibility. Ultimately, we all share the same home.

Astronauts are given this broader perspective of our place. They speak about the state of awe it inspires. Now, each individual of our beautiful, diverse species is able to touch this perspective, through the beautiful images that are accessible, in this documentary and many other sources.

To have a possibility of global peace and harmony, each individual needs access to a broad perspective with a global awareness. I sincerely hope that we, as a species, will be able to mature in living together on and with this planet. We are planetary after all.

I am deeply grateful for what this documentary has given me and hope its message spreads widely.
