This poetic, evocative film celebrates life on our planet in all its myriad forms. Combining beautiful cinematography with animation, still photographs and historical footage culled from the fifty-year collection of the National Film Board of Canada, the film is a meditation on the recurring patterns of life, death and rebirth in nature and culture. Images of humanity's destructive influence on the Earth give way to manifestations of the creative spirit expressed in dance, art, work and the act of birth itself. Mother Earth speaks in music and pictures to communicate the hope that life may redeem itself through its own re-creation.
