PLANETARY (85' & 1HR) 2015, UK. *Official Selection: SXSW, HOT DOCS. How important Is space travel to humanity? That is one of many questions Planetary asks in this provocative and breathtaking wakeup call. It's a cross continental, cinematic journey, that takes us from deep space to the peaks of the Himalayas, the African savannas and the hyper-paced streets of Tokyo. It is a humbling reminder of the near-incalculable breadth of our impact on the earth, intellectually challenges us to reconsider our relationship with our home and the urgency to shift our perspective. Planetary asks us to rethink our relationship with ourselves, each other and the world around us – to remember that we are PLANETARY. A simple idea perhaps, but one that may just be revolutionary enough to alter our current course and ensure our future.
