ellen page, 2012, inception

Emulating the style of memorable documentaries such as What the Bleep Do We Know and An Inconvenient Truth, Joao Amorim’s partially animated film 2012: Time for a Change is making waves due to its eco-relevance and examination of how human evolution has permanently altered Mother Nature.

Offering insight into the state of our planet from numerous anthropologists, scientists, physicists and notable entertainment figures like everybody’s favorite musician/eco-activist Sting, Inception’s Ellen Page and unorthodox filmmaker/artist David Lynch, 2012: Time for a Change effectively fleshes out how we’ve arrived at such a troubling tipping point in our planet’s history while also offering intriguing ideas on how to reverse the trajectory that we’re currently on.

Mayan culture myths and prophecies are cited along with the notion that our world might become a better place if we let go of our deeply embedded materialism, instead embracing “the birth of a regenerative planetary culture where collaboration and the exploration of psyche and spirit becomes the new cutting edge.”

If we alter human nature and remember what it’s like to appreciate the basics, we might actually be able to reverse the hands of time, creating more of an eco-positive effect the natural world around us.

That prescription has apparently worked for Sting (who describes a psychedelic jungle experience which transformed him into the treehugger he is today), Page (who grounded her growing celebrity ego by happily shoveling goat excrement) and Lynch (who subscribes to daily transcendental meditation to successfully temper his…well…hot temper).

The final preview of the film is happening at Portland, Oregon’s Living Room Theater today with a wider nationwide release slated this fall — seems like a must-see for every eager ‘greenie‘!
