Earth Focus Presents
"Earth Focus Presents" is a curated series of documentaries focusing on environmental challenges and solutions.
Climate is changing. Instead of showing all the worst that can happen, the French documentary "Tomorrow" focuses on the people suggesting solutions and their actions. The documentary sets out to showcase alternative and creative ways of viewing agriculture, economics, energy and education. It offers constructive solutions to act on a local level to make a difference on a global level.
"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.
