FMTV - Breath Of Life

Breath Of Life

Runtime: 82m 04s | Release date: 2015

Humans are the only species capable of imagining the future while at the same time ignoring the consequences of our current actions. Breath of Life reveals why we modern humans are in denial about catastrophes of our own making that could come to pass sooner than we think.

Filmed in Europe, Scandinavia, North America and Hawaii, the film features breathtaking cinematography and insightful commentary from the world's greatest evolutionary biologists and psychologists - but it is the common sense of farmers in the drought-stricken western United States and the wisdom of Hawaiians from the most isolated place on the planet that show us the way back to a more honest and authentic relationship with the world and reality.

I knew that the situation is pretty serious but I didn't realise it's this bad. The movie is a real eye-opener. Like somone said before, it would be great to know what one can do on an individual level. We really need to get our act together....

To all filmmakers: Please turn the music track down a few pegs, so we can hear the message of the film without having to listen so hard. I feel I am wasting energy listening through the music. It's frustrating and irritating, which is counterproductive to learning.

Hi Deborah, thank you so much for your feedback regarding the background music, however, as this film was sourced from a different filmmaker and was not produced by FMTV, there is really nothing that we can do to adjust the volume of the background music. But rest assured that I will pass along your feedback for our future films. Thanks so much for your understanding ❤ ~ Iris

I had to stop watching as the background music is too loud and the louder I put it so as to hear the people talking, the more the music reverberates. Pity, the type of documentary I like to watch.

Very well put together. However it is only to rise awareness, everyone can point out problems. Lets face it we are disconnected from nature so we need to be taught to go back to basics. Whats the step by step feasible solution? How can we as individuals start right now?

Loved this film- so thought provoking. Really made me feel like I am not doing all I can to change my footprint, and really how selfish and wasteful we have become. I need to do more - for my grandkids, nieces/nephews and their grandchildren.
