Origins takes a journey through the biological roots of where we have come from and where we are going. This film looks at the advances of our civilization and how the recklessness of society and unchecked technology is choking out the environment. This film shows how man, technology, nature can work together and coexist without damaging our environment.
The documentary challenges us to reevaluate our existence in the modern world and embrace nature. It is survival of both humans and the planet that is understood by looking back on the origins of our species nearly 200,000 years ago. By simply studying our ancestors, we can live in harmony with natural and developed an uncanny ability to adapt and ensure that all of their basic needs were met. Our basic needs remain unchanged, yet our modern technologies often imperil the very elements we rely upon to nourish and sustain us, leading to a number of chronic health concerns, a deteriorating planet, and increasing severe obstacles for our descendants.
However, there is hope. This film shows us that the power to reverse out destructive habits is up to each of us. We all play a part in the circle of life.
