Regenerating Life is a feature-length documentary that takes an ecological approach to unraveling the climate crisis. It challenges the prevailing wisdom that carbon emissions from the burning of fossil fuels are the primary cause of this crisis and offers a new narrative. The film proposes that it is humankind’s relentless destruction of nature that has caused the climate crisis. This is because nature – the vast biodiversity that exists on our planet – regulates and balances Earth’s climate.
We can reverse this destructive process by Regenerating Life. Filmmaker John Feldman explores how life regulates the climate through photosynthesis and the carbon cycle; the water cycle; the dung cycle; and a vast interconnected soil network of fungi, microorganisms, and plant roots. John visits people who are working on solutions. They are looking for ways to repair the damage. By working with nature, they are restoring the forests, fields, wetlands, and oceans. They are regenerating soils to grow healthy food and build healthy communities. This is the solution to the climate crisis. 2023. 2h15m
