Indie Film, “Love Thy Nature”
January 26, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm UTC+0
The Sea Of Glass—Center For The Arts Cinema presents Love Thy Nature, narrated by Liam Neeson; a cinematic journey into the beauty and intimacy of our relationship with the natural world. With mesmerizing artistry and fascinating details, the film explores how nature nourishes us.
Neeson is the voice of Homo Sapiens — our collective humankind — who, in the past few thousand years, has come to believe that we are separate from nature. This mind-set has caused us to disrupt billions of years of evolution, causing a mass extinction of species and threatening the survival of the human race.
Love Thy Nature shows that a new era of connectedness with the natural world is key to ensuring our species’ future. This era might just be dawning: A new science called biomimicry taps into nature’s four billion years of research and development for some of the most brilliant cutting edge inventions, pointing to a new highly advanced technological age — The Biological Revolution.
In medicine, doctors are unveiling new findings on the role of nature in sustaining and healing the human body. And experts have discovered that just spending time in nature promotes healing, emotional stability, connectedness, and even neurological health in children.
Through Sapiens’ journey, the film reveals how a relationship with nature ignites a sense of meaning and wonder so profound that it touches us at the very core of what it means to be human.
Traversing the globe, Love Thy Nature shares the dazzling spectacles of our planet while revealing how a deeper connection with nature transforms us as people and communities. And that transformation inspires us not only to restore our ecosystems, but also our human family, and ourselves.
