“The really wonderful thing that happened to me when I was in space,” says astronaut Mae Jemison in Planetary, “was this feeling of belonging to the entire universe.” When we first captured photographs of Earth from space, humanity gained a completely new perspective on who we are and our place in the universe. For the first time, we could see our home planet from the outside—opening up a new understanding of all life on Earth as a dynamic, unified whole. Through stunning footage and wide-ranging interviews with Buddhist masters, indigenous elders, scientists, philosophers, and, of course, astronauts, this ambitious documentary delivers one central message: Everything on our fragile planet is interconnected.
Tune in to hear from Buddhist luminaries David Loy, the late Alan Senauke, Anam Thubten, Angel Kyodo Wiliams, Ethan Nichtern, Roshi Joan Halifax, Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje, Wes “Scoop” Nisker, and Joanna Macy.
