SHFT, Vimeo, and Abramorama are proud to present PLANETARY, a feature documentary launching on April 22nd in select theaters and on Vimeo.
From the Filmmakers:
We are in the midst of a global crisis of perspective. We have forgotten the undeniable truth that everything is connected. 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 Davis, to National Geographic Explorer Elizabeth Lindsey, and Head of the Tibetan Buddhist Kagyu school, the 17th Karmapa. They shed new light on the ways our worldview is profoundly affecting life on our planet.
PLANETARY is the debut feature from Planetary Collective and is directed by Guy Reid, written and edited by Steve Watts Kennedy, produced by Christoph Ferstad, Guy Reid and Steve Watts Kennedy, and executive producers Paul Hawken and Stephen Apkon, with key contributions from astronauts Ron Garan and Mae Jemison and featuring an original score by Human Suits
We hope you'll join us in screening this one of a kind film with a message for us all.
One day - April 22.
