FMTV - Joanna Macy & The Great Turning

Joanna Macy & The Great Turning

Runtime: 26m 50s | Release date: 2014

Joanna Macy and The Great Turning is a short film about the societal shift now underway from an industrial growth society to a more sustainable civilization. Based on an extensive interview with well-known writer, teacher and activist Joanna Macy, the film lays out Macy’s understanding of the Great Turning as the third major revolution of human existence after the agricultural and industrial revolutions. 

"The most remarkable feature of this historical moment on Earth," says Joanna Macy, "is not that we are on the way to destroying the world - we've actually been on the way for quite a while. It is that we are beginning to wake up, as from a millennia-long sleep, to a whole new relationship to our world, to ourselves and each other." Macy considers how human beings have previously responded to the major challenges of our past and shows how we are doing so once again, in hundreds of ways both small and large. Illustrated with beautiful footage shot around the world, the film is at once sobering, insightful, and inspiring. The Great Turning is ultimately a call to take part in this new adventure in order to help create a more life-sustaining world.

I wish I had paid more attention to this remarkable woman earlier. Her ability to hold the pain with such an open heart is astounding. Listening to her makes me draw deep inner breath in to the places i shut down out of fear too long ago. Thank you Joanna . You are a gift to us all .

I have just joined FMTV and I want to thank you for providing a platform for invoking and feeding positive and thought provoking films and wellness guides/support! Yes! Yes! It's so important to turn off the news and immerse ourselves in all that you're offering here. The more we embed these ideas in our minds the more organically they can grow. I enjoy having these programs on in the background of my home instead of the news. Sometimes we cannot get our children to sit down and watch the programs with us however, they do absorb the information they're exposed to. So, thank you, thank you! I haven't heard of Joanna Macy before. She's wonderful and I'll be researching her a little more from here. Enjoy your day & "the shifting"!!!

Nice to hear such an optimistic view for what is in store for planet earth. I am learning more and more that "alive" can be ascribed to much more than plants and animals but also to the earth and the universe. Alive mean that it has to be taken care of and respected.
