PLANETARY: Cosmic Origins Inspire Emerging New Worldview
February 26, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
PLANETARY is a cross continental, cinematic journey, that explores our cosmic origins and our future as a species. It is a poetic and humbling reminder that now is the time to shift our perspective: to reconsider our relationship with ourselves, each other and the world around us – to remember that we are PLANETARY. Q&A to follow the film.
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 Davis, and the founder of biomimicry, Janine Benyus. They shed new light on the ways our worldview is profoundly affecting life on our planet, and share insights explaining how deepening our understanding of how life is interrelated can help us address climate change, income inequality, consumerism, and other crises facing humanity.
