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.
