Watch this! – The Overview Effect

In a world full of suffering we every so often need something to give us perspective. To help inspire each month one of our Cheetahs shares a video worth watching. This month’s treasure was selected by Llew.

This gorgeous short film investigates the Overview Effect which is the name given to the life altering effect on astronauts of seeing the Earth from a distance for the first time. Through interviews with five astronauts as well as a wider range of thinkers, it is amazing to see the excitement with which they recount their experiences and the shift in consciousness that has occurred as a result. Everything about this film is exceptional, the cinematography and soundtrack as well as unique footage of the earth rotating received courtesy of Nasa a special treat. Overview is a precursor to a feature length documentary Planetary which can be watched via the website weareplanetary.com.
