'Planetary' Will Make You Stop And Think About Your Place In The Universe


What if we all acted like our behavior impacted everyone else? That's the message of "Planetary," a documentary seeking to shift our perspectives and remind us that we're all interconnected.

In an era of global climate change and other unprecedented environmental challenges, the film suggests we must shift our world views in order to shift our behavior. "We are at a turning point, and to figure out how to transform our civilization, we need to consider the lives of all beings, and all human cultures," the filmmakers explain in a press release.

Directed by Guy Reid, the film combines stunning footage of our planet from outer space, along with interviews with environmental experts, thinkers and faith leaders.

“The really wonderful thing that happened to me when I was in space was this feeling of belonging to the entire universe,” former NASA astronaut Mae Jemison says in the film. “We’re as much a part of this universe as any speck of stardust, any asteroid. We’re part of this universe.”

"Planetary" opens in theaters on Wednesday, April 22 and is also available for streaming on Vimeo. Watch a trailer below:
