"TERRA".. A NEW, MUST-WATCH DOCUMENTARY

     Terra is a thought provoking and visually stunning documentary about Earth. It is "an ode to humanity" and a spectacular portrayal of the beauty of life. It also brings to light the struggles that we face as we stray further and further from the natural. Watching it evokes a visceral sense awe and gives pause for reflection on the interconnectedness of us all. Available on Netflix now.

Terra is not a wildlife documentary. Nor is it a militant investigative documentary. Terra is an essay, in the literary sense, on the human species and its relationship with other living beings.

Terra, is an ode to humanity. It tells the story of life. Yann Arthus Bertrand and Michael Pitiot reveal the incredible saga of our living planet. From the first lichen to the gigantic forests, monkeys of the jungle to the mythic animals of the savannah.

Over barely 10,000 years, life on Earth has been profoundly affected by the incredible development of humanity. But mankind is now increasingly isolated. How have our relations with other living beings changed so much? What do we still see, or notice, of the living world around us? Terra is a journey through the history of life forms, a quest for the animal within us. For true humanity.

By proposing that we once again treat wildlife with the respect it deserves, Terra shows its credentials as an ode to the human species, a humanist and deliberately positive film, openly advocating that humanity is still capable of “getting back to basics”.
