(Canada ) 2016 | 122 minutes | Kevin McMahon | English, Japanese, German with English subtitles
Marshall McLuhan famously said, "There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. We are all crew." Award-winning Canadian filmmaker Kevin McMahon takes this as a point of departure in this poetic film, which explores what 50 years of research into understanding humanity's daily influence on our planet's life forces have revealed, and where our responsibility lies in steering the only ship in the universe known to carry life. Narrated by Sarah Polley.
"McMahon digs deep, exposing (humankind's) continuing exploitation of resources, but he also offers hope—giving examples of people and communities who are starting to create sustainable local cultures." –Marc Glassman, POV Magazine
