This is a short film expressing the inner turmoil and flood of emotions that overwhelmed me as I dove into research and learned more about the Anthropocene; knowledge that came at the height of the pandemic, a time when there was nowhere to go and nothing to do, when civilization was turning to nature for escape and safety. I spent hours each day hiking in nature to clear my thoughts, realizing how beautiful our planet truly is. The impact of learning we were destroying it devastated me and I worked through my emotions with creative expression in my artwork and writing. As the director of this film, I am concerned with the importance of respecting the ecology of our ecosystems and the need for Ecocentrism to replace Anthropocentrism to fundamentally alter how humans view themselves in relation to the world around them.
Directed by Nicole Anne Matheson (USA)
