Pure visual poetry
7 October 2019 | by sarahgavianSee all my reviews

While some reviewers feel they needed more information, I was content to revel in the exquisite images marked by section headings and occasional narration. Yes, there is so so much more that could be asked, and it would be great if there were accompanying materials for those who want to follow up, but I was simply swept away by the images (and drone work!) telling the simple truth about human transformation of the planet. (I do confess that I whipped out pen and paper in the middle of the film to note down the place names so I could Google them later). I am also a subscriber to Overview on Instagram which likewise documents human earthworks, in that case with a bit more narrative.

My biggest regret is not (yet) finding a way to watch this film again, at home, slowly.
