ABOUT US

FROM THE GROUND UP

We are nourishing the movement toward a more-harmonious relationship to our environment from the ground up. We seek

to change the content we celebrate and how it’s celebrated.

The films are carefully selected to represent a broad range of interpretations of an Earthly experience. We seek truth, integrity, inclusion and wisdom; to be active listeners in the ever-evolving

story of the Earth.

IN ALIGNMENT

We not only offer Earth-honoring films but work to do so in an Earth-honoring way. We are constantly assessing whether our practices align with our messages; our mission is integrity.

 

By shifting the ways we create and consume, we hope to ‘be the change we wish to see in the world’.
