Seek­ing the Earth Keep­ers

In the Moment - - Good News -

Once in a while, some­thing comes along that makes you stop, put down your phone and re­ally lis­ten. Down To Earth is an award-win­ning doc­u­men­tary, lmed and nar­rated by a Dutch fam­ily who gave up their en­vi­able life in cos­mopoli­tan Lon­don to travel to the ends of the earth.

For ve years, lm­mak­ers Rolf Win­ters and Re­nata Heinen, along with their three chil­dren, jour­neyed across six con­ti­nents to live with some of the old­est indige­nous com­mu­ni­ties on the planet. Their mis­sion: to gain ac­cess to the ‘Earth Keep­ers’; the medicine men and women, wis­dom keep­ers, shamans, spir­i­tual lead­ers and heal­ers who have re­tained a nat­u­ral bal­ance and live in har­mony with their sur­round­ings.

“Down To Earth is a mir­ror to hu­man­ity, a poignant and timely re ec­tion on our civ­i­lized world,” says the couple. “The movie in­vites you to see the world through the eyes of the Keep­ers of the Earth. [It’s] both a wake-up call and a resur­gence of hope for our world to come.” As a viewer, we travel from the deserts of Kenya to the Ama­zo­nian jun­gle to an Abo­rig­i­nal ‘ur­ban earth­keeper’ liv­ing in Syd­ney. The fam­ily dis­cover deep wis­dom from their con­ver­sa­tions, not least that in all of us is the power to change our lives and the lives of others.

Pro­found, timely, re­as­sur­ing. Like the lm­mak­ers, you’ll come away both changed by the ex­pe­ri­ence and want­ing to do more. Down to Earth is re­leased on 14th Septem­ber. Watch the trailer, read more and nd out where you can see it at www.down­toearth lm.com
