Love Thy Nature


Love Thy Nature presents a compelling case that reconnecting with the natural world is the key to improving personal health and ensuring our survival on earth.

Traversing the globe, the film celebrates the dazzling natural spectacles of our planet, while also revealing how a deeper connection with nature can transform each of us and inspire us to restore endangered ecosystems, as well as the human family.

Liam Neeson provides the voice of Homo Sapiens — our collective humankind — reflecting on how in the past several thousand years we have become separate from nature, believing we were meant to subdue it. The film especially traces the disconnect between humans and nature from the agrarian and industrial revolutions to the digital revolution. This disconnect has disrupted billions of years of evolution, leading to a mass extinction of species and threatening the very survival of the human race.
