Program 8 – Mothership I

This program highlights our relationship to our one and only home, Mother Earth. The films celebrate individual and collective efforts to protect and preserve the lands and the waters that sustain us by highlighting global iterations of the LANDBACK movement. This program is a love letter to our fragile ‘pale blue dot’ carrying us through space-time, and a call to action for better stewardship.
