Climate change is here. Will we have the wisdom to survive?

The film includes interviews with activists Bill McKibben, Joanna Macy, Roger Payne, Herschelle Milford, Quincy Saul, and more.

“A brilliant, achingly poignant film. Please SEE THIS FILM—bring it to your community, talk about it, share it with others. It is one of the most artfully-rendered films on the planet’s crisis (and how we move through it) I have ever seen. Extraordinarily moving.
Shyla Nelson, One Earth One Voice Campaign

“Marvelous and moving. Beautiful work.”
Fran Korten, Yes! Magazine

Phenomenal. I firmly believe that it will serve to catalyze necessary spiritual, social, and intellectual transformations, and hasten global progress in building a sustainable world.“— Jamie Konopacky, Representative for Sustainable Development, US Baha’i Office of Public Affairs
