Discussion following the film with director Sylvie Rokab, moderated by SMC Adjunct Professor Sheila Laffey.
This award-winning documentary points to how deeply we’ve lost touch with nature – and takes us on a mesmerizing cinematic journey through the beauty and intimacy of our relationship with the natural world. The narrator is Liam Neeson, serving as the voice of “Sapiens” (our collective humankind) who, in the past few thousand years, has come to believe that we have transcended nature. Yet experts uncover how a new era of nature connection might just be dawning: “Biomimicry” scientists look to the natural world for the most brilliant cutting-edge inventions, ecologists unveil how nature restores our communities, and doctors are finding new ways in which nature heals the body, mind and brain.
