For Earth Day 2022, we take our cue from this year’s theme, “Invest In Our Planet.” We shine the spotlight on five films which touch on different aspects of this theme to help us understand the world we live in with fresh eyes. Are we taking our planet for granted? Do we have time to fix our climate crisis? These are just some questions the films explore.
To accompany the films are five soundtracks which express the magnitude, the majesty and the urgency one may feel when contemplating the film’s topics. Watch the film trailers and listen to the soundtracks below.
This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, and even though initiatives to target areas crucial to creating a more environmentally friendly society have been hampered by the Coronavirus, it does not mean the show can’t go on. With organizations such as Earth Day going digital this year and thanks to projects dedicated to cleaning up the environment already in place since January (Forbes), all is not lost.
It has been said that Earth Day should be every day, but on this occasion, we take a razor sharp focus on the films and their soundtracks dedicated to this time of reflection, education and re-commitment to mother earth.
