    On the 40th anniversary of the famous ‘Blue Marble’ photograph taken of Earth from space, Planetary Collective presents a short film documenting astronauts’ life-changing stories of seeing the Earth from the outside – a perspective-altering experience often described as the Overview Effect.

    The Overview Effect, first described by author Frank White in 1987, is an experience that transforms astronauts’ perspective of the planet and mankind’s place upon it. Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.

    ‘Overview’ is a short film that explores this phenomenon through interviews with five astronauts who have experienced the Overview Effect. The film also features insights from commentators and thinkers on the wider implications and importance of this understanding for society, and our relationship to the environment.

  3. A dialógusok és valódi cselekmény nélküli film máshol még soha nem látott perspektívából mutatja meg a természet csodáit, a felhőket, a viharokat, a naplementét és az éjszaka fényeit, hol lassítva, hol felgyorsítva az eseményeket, majd az ember alkotta létesítmények művészien fényképezett részleteiben gyönyörködhet a néző, a milliós nagyvárosok forgatagában, a szinte néptelen sivatagok látványában, a különböző népcsoportokhoz tartozó emberi arcokban, de láthatunk balettszerűen mozgó gyártósoron dolgozó robotokat, az ipar képeit, és láthatjuk az emberi pusztítás nyomait is.
    Koyaanisqatsi hopi nyelven annyit jelent: egyensúlyából kibillent világ - kizökkent világ.
    Reggio filmje hol megnyugtatja a nézőt, hol csodálkozásra készteti, de mindenképpen gondolkodásra serkent. Célja, hogy meglássuk a világ hétköznapi csodáit, és megértsük, hogy milyen veszélyek fenyegetik változó világunkat, ha az embernek köszönhetően kibillen a kényes egyensúly!
