We are in the midst of a global crisis of perspective. We have forgotten the undeniable truth that every living thing is connected.
PLANETARY is a provocative and breathtaking wakeup call—a cross continental, cinematic journey. The film takes us from one of the truly extraordinary events of our civilization, space travel, and looks at how this gave us a totally different perspective on the Earth.
