The Sacred Balance (2002) (trailer)

5

Based on David Suzuki's best-selling book of the same name, and filmed on five continents, THE SACRED BALANCE celebrates a new scientific worldview, an inclusive vision of nature in which we human beings are intimately connected to all life processes on Earth.

With Suzuki as our guide, we visit the best minds of the age. Philosophers, scholars, priests, and shamans all share their visions and perspectives of the universe. Scientists such as E.O.Wilson, Ary Goldberger, Brian Goodwin, Wade Davis, Stephen Lansing and James Lovelock reveal the meaning behind their perceptions and discoveries. We hear astonishing tales of the world's infinite complexity. Through many knowledgeable eyes, guided by many wise hearts, we are reminded of who we are: creatures of the Earth, biological beings totally dependent upon the planet's life support systems.

The titles in this series are:

Part 1: Journey into New Worlds - Suzuki celebrates the birth of a new scientific worldview that is holistic rather reductionist.

Part 2: The Matrix of Life - Suzuki travels the world exploring our intimate relationship with water and air.

Part 3: The Fire of Creation - Suzuki explores the latest scientific findings which amplify the age-old reverence for the sun.

Part 4: Coming Home - Suzuki explores biophilia -- the innate, hereditary need of human beings to affiliate with nature.

Films For Patrons: Donate $5/mo to Gain Access to These Great Films

Films For Action is a 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 healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations, while 99% of our library is free to access and always will be. The pay-per-view films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patrons, we partner with filmmakers and distributors to provide access to a growing number of films that are normally pay-per-view. With just 23 highly curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "Netflix for world changers," but its main function is to support the library as a whole.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker or distributor looking to collaborate, drop us a line via our contact page. 

Cheers,
