28 Apr / Planetary: Reconnect to Something Bigger
There are plenty of documentaries that seek to inspire change in the world. “Virunga,” “Racing Extinction” and “Blackfish” are all perfect examples. And then there are those films that take another approach, urging viewers to seek change within and to ponder the deeper questions associated with life and nature. The new film “Planetary” falls squarely in the latter camp, a moving and beautiful documentary that doesn’t ask us to save the world as much as reconsider our place in it.
The film by director Guy Reid is a follow-up to his award-winning short film “Overview,” which featured astronauts’ impressions of Earth as seen from space. “Planetary” begins in much the same way, with views of our home planet as seen by the Apollo missions, and then cleverly explains how what we saw then is no longer what we see today.
