“Overview” – A Short Film by Planetary Collective
It would seem that those among us human beings who are lucky enough to travel to space, and are able to view the earth from high above the atmosphere, return to us with a profoundly different and new perspective of their home, and the implications of this new view of the world are far from trivial. From that distance, and floating peacefully around the planet, the mind wanders into an almost meditative state, one where the human experience is put into a new and unusual wholistic viewpoint.
It was with this in mind that the group known as “Planetary Collective” put together this stunning mini-documentary, interviewing astronauts about their shift in perception after their individual returns to earth.
One of the quotes from the film puts this into a context, and one which encapsulates the spirit of the whole short film, reads:
Running time 19 minutes.
