Love Thy Nature

Runtime: 76m 25s | Release date: 2016

Narrated by Liam Neeson, the award winning film 'Love Thy Nature' vividly illustrates how we've lost touch with nature and presents a compelling case that reconnecting with the natural world is the key to both good health and to solving our environmental crises. Traversing the globe, the film celebrates the dazzling natural spectacles of our planet while also revealing how a deep connection with nature can transform each of us and inspire us to restore endangered ecosystems, as well as our human family.

Liam Neeson provides the voice of homo sapiens (our collective humankind) reflecting on how in the past several thousand years we have gradually separated from nature, believing we were meant to transcend and conquer it. The film traces the disconnect between humans and nature from the agrarian and industrial revolutions to the digital evolution. This disconnect has disrupted billions of years of evolution, leading to a mass extinction of species and threatening the very survival of the human race.

With the help of engaging experts, the film highlights the restorative power of nature and several hopeful new developments. The emerging science of Biomimicry emulates nature's designs, processes, and systems - rather than simply harvesting its raw materials - resulting in some of today's most cutting-edge innovations. In the medical field, doctors are unveiling new findings on the role of nature in sustaining and healing the human body, and have discovered that spending time in nature can promote physical health, mental acuity, and emotional enhancement.

Ultimately, 'Love Thy Nature' reveals how a connection with nature ignites a sense of meaning and wonder so profound that it touches the very core of what it means to be human.

A beautiful documentary. I will watch it again as it is filled with the calming understanding of life and our connection to nature. I now understand myself so much more and my reasons for returning to the land that I grew up on as a child and my need to turn it back into the place where things grow and health and happiness is a way of life.

WOW - once your eyes have been opened there is no un-seeing.
We need to not only save ourselves, but the planet we live on.
