Special EARTH DAY weekend screenings! This award-winning new film narrated by Liam Neeson is a cinematic immersion into the beauty and intimacy of our relationship with the natural world. And while environmental crises threaten the very survival of our species, a renewed connection with nature holds the key to a highly advanced new era.
Neeson is the voice of Homo Sapiens – our collective humankind – who, in the past few thousand years, has come to believe that we are separate from nature. This mind-set has caused us to disrupt billions of years of evolution, causing a mass extinction of species and threatening the survival of the human race. Love Thy Nature shows that a new era of connectedness with the natural world is key to ensuring our species’ future. This era might just be dawning: for instance, a new science called biomimicry taps into nature’s four billion years of R&D for some of the most brilliant cutting edge inventions; in the medical field, doctors are unveiling new findings on the role of nature to sustain and heal the human body; and experts have discovered that just spending time in nature promotes healing, emotional stability, connectedness, and even neurological health in children. Through Sapiens’ journey, the film reveals how a relationship with nature ignites a sense of meaning and wonder so profound that it touches us at the very core of what it means to be human. Not rated. 76 mins. No passes.
