“Overview” – A Short Film by Planetary Collective

Posted by on May 13, 2013 in Featured, Science, Thoughts, Video | 0 comments


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:

“This view of the earth from space, the whole earth perspective, I think is the true symbol of this age, and I believe that what’s going to happen is there’s going to be a greater and greater interest in communicating this idea, because after all it’s key to our survival. We have to start acting as one species with one destiny. We are not going to survive if we do not do that.”

Running time 19 minutes.

Planetary Collective are currently running a “kickstarter” account to help fund their next project, a feature length film titled “Continuum“, which you can read more about here.
