Shot entirely from the air on four continents over a period of seven years, the film THE EARTH WINS explores the delicate balance between man and Mother Earth, our inter-dependence and the impact of man's actions upon the Earth and her inhabitants.
THE EARTH WINS takes viewers on a journey to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and Black Saturday, to beautiful locations and slums, as well as exploring animals at play in their natural habitat, including rare footage of dolphins and whales interacting.
THE EARTH WINS creates moments of true reflection combining stunning aerial imagery with powerful lyrics and a soundtrack from: The Who, Coldplay, New Order, The Temper Trap, The Art of Fusion, Yothu Yindi and composer Sean Van Doornum.
