About Planetary
We are in the midst of a global crisis of perspective. We have forgotten the undeniable truth that every living thing is connected.

PLANETARY is a provocative and breathtaking wakeup call—a cross continental, cinematic journey, that explores our cosmic origins and our future as a species. It is a poetic and humbling reminder that now is the time to shift our perspective. PLANETARY asks us to rethink who we really are, to reconsider our relationship with ourselves, each other and the world around us—to remember that we are PLANETARY.

PLANETARY features interviews with thirty renowned experts including astronauts Ron Garan and Mae Jemison, Bill McKibben, Barry Lopez, Janine Benyus, Peter Russell, Sabonfu Some, Brian Swimme, Mary Evelyn Tucker, Paul Hawken, Mona Polacea, National Geographic explorer Elizabeth Lindsey, and Head of the Tibetan Buddhist Kagyu school, the 17th Karma.
