Down To Earth (2020)

4.3 ·

Leaving behind their cosmopolitan life, a couple and their three young children travel the world searching for a new perspective on life. During their five-year journey they live with some of the oldest indigenous communities on the planet. They record their encounters with the elders tribal sages never filmed or interviewed before. Without a crew or schedule, just one backpack and one camera each. And the curiosity to listen. 

DOWN to EARTH is a mirror to humanity, a poignant and timely reflection on our ‘civilized’ world. The film invites us to see the world through the eyes of the Earth Keepers. It takes us on an inner journey, re-connecting us with the source and the mutual path we are walking. Having lived under the radar of our modern society for centuries, the Earth Keepers see that now is the time to step forward and share their insights with those who are ready to listen. DOWN to EARTH is both a wake up call and a resurgence of hope for our world to come.

Thanks to the filmmakers, you can watch DOWN to EARTH for free on Films For Action! The film can also be watched in 6 other languages via the official website. If you'd like to show your thanks, consider making a donation and sharing the film with friends. The support is greatly appreciated! - Films For Action

In the Spirit of the Gift - A Message from the Filmmakers

​To support the emerging global movement of People-Powered Change, we have decided to make the film available to everyone. We are moving away from the traditional transactional model and take the unconventional route to offer the film in a ‘contribute-as-you-like’ model instead. You decide after watching the film if and how much you would like to contribute. This way we make sure that as many people as possible can watch the film, without money being a threshold. We trust we will get the support we need in our endeavor to bring the message of the Earth Keepers to a global audience. With your contribution we can continue to support initiatives around the world over and invite you to start your own initiative of People-Powered Change.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
