The surface of the earth teems with stories, a drama which has played out over millenia. Will we continue to play a part of it all?

About this Event

More information at imaginesciencefilms.org/ny12

Nature, as we know it, is a recent invention. Separation of the human and natural worlds is a product of Enlightenment thought, and as we reshape the globe on the cataclysmic scale of a ice age or meteor impact it becomes ever less meaningful to maintain such philosophical distance. This program highlights the inextricable connections between human and other life, and the landscapes we all share. On alternate continents, climate change threatens with too little or too much water. Social histories are found in shifting countrysides and the wings of the migratory monarch butterfly. Humans observe and are observed, via sensoria which may be very unlike our own. The surface of the earth teems with stories, seen and unseen, in a vast drama which has played out over millenia and will continue to play out for millenia more to come. But our actions today, in this present period of pivotal crisis, may determine whether humanity will continue to be a part of it at all.
