Last week Tricycle caught up with film director and Planetary Collective founding member Guy Reid to talk about the group’s short film Overview and their forthcoming feature film Continuum. The Collective, founded in 2011, responds to the most pressing issues our civilization is currently facing as we push the planet to its brink. Its members, pulling from their Buddhist backgrounds, attribute the roots of the environmental and social crises facing humanity to the misperception that we are separate—from each other, the planet and the cosmos as a whole. The solution, they contend, can be found in an emerging worldview that points to our interdependence.

Guy Reid holds a Masters Degree in Leadership in Sustainable Development at Forum for the Future in London, graduating with the Richard Sandbrook prize for Leadership in Sustainable Development. He attended London University’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) where he read Eastern philosophy and religion, focusing specifically on Indo-Tibetan Buddhism and the relationship between religion and ecology. Reid directs all of Planetary Collective’s films.
