Free and Discounted Showings of the Documentaries Overview and Planetary
Overview is a 20-minute documentary about the dramatic shift in consciousness—towards a more holistic and ecological way of being—that occurs for many astronauts when they see the Earth from space. With over eight million views, Overview is one of the most-watched films on the Vimeo platform, and won a prestigious 2013 Environmental Media Award. The sequel, Planetary, is a feature-length documentary about our global crises, fueled by our collectively forgetting that every living thing is connected. It highlights representatives from several modern disciplines and select ancient traditions that view the Earth as a living system, all offering us a wake-up call.
Overview is available for free; and the producers agreed to make Planetary available at free and discounted rates for the Morehead-Cain family for a period of time following the Forum. It is now available for purchase at its regular price.
