A poem for the planet, Metamorphosis takes the pulse of our earth and bears witness to a moment of profound change: the loss of one world, and the birth of another. The film captures the true scale of the global environmental crisis, a crisis that is also an opportunity for transformation. Programmer Janet Fairbanks notes “The filmmakers use beautiful images throughout the film, including powerful installations from a variety of artists responding to the difficult issues we are facing. The life cycle of monarch butterflies serves as a metaphor for how we need to change from caterpillars eating everything in sight to a new way of being”.
The filmmakers are optimists even in the middle of the most dire crisis. Metamorphosis carves a path from the present to the future, and offers a bold new vision for humanity and the world. Click Here to view the film trailer
