thought provoking and relevant film.

presented without hype and without preaching.
And there were just enough celebrities to give
the film mainstream appeal.

intricate connections that link humans to nature,
themes that permeate indigenous thinking and spirituality.
Everything and everyone is connected.

highlight of the film for me was when the elders
called out to the whales, and they emerged from
an age of environmental degradation and threats
posed by climate change, the film offers hope,
and the world owes Lennon and Kindersley gratitude
for this magnificent effort.
