documentary film following a mission to achieve interstellar space travel. As the mission unfolds, the scientists find themselves questioning whether the space agency’s solution to achieving interstellar space travel is ethical at all.

For decades, scientists have theorized the existence of liquid water oceans on Jupiter’s moon, Europa. We’ve recently discovered new, captivating evidence that these sub-surface oceans do exist and could support life.
We’ve sent six astronauts from space programs throughout the world on a three year journey to Europa to explore its oceans and confirm these findings.
We’re proud to be at the forefront of the effort to prove the existence of extra-terrestrial life within our solar system, within our lifetimes.

The Planetary Collective is a
a group of filmmakers, visual media creatives and thinkers who work with cosmologists, ecologists, and philosophers to explore some of the big questions facing our planet at this time.
Embracing a multidisciplinary, multi-media approach, we brings scientists, philosophers, and researchers together with designers, coders, and creatives to bring new perspectives to audiences around the world in fresh and innovative ways.
The planet is in crisis. The root of the environmental and social crises facing humanity is the misperception that we are separate – from each other, the planet, and the cosmos as a whole. The solution to this crisis can be found in an emerging worldview that points to our interdependence.
The CONTINUUM feature-length documentary will explore this worldview, weaving together perspectives and ideas from some of the key theorists and thinkers in the fields of cosmology, environmentalism, sustainability, social theory, anthropology, and systems dynamics, telling the story of where we have come from, where we are now, and the possibilities for our future.
The have a crowd-funding campaign on to fund the completion of the Continuum project: Planetary Collective presents CONTINUUM by Planetary Collective — Kickstarter.
We’ve already shot twenty amazing interviews, and some stunning visual narrative footage, but we need to raise a final round of funding to shoot 5-6 more interviews, and carry us through post-production to finish the film.
With $80,000 dollars, we can finish this film. But with more than that, we can make it more amazing, and bring it to you even faster.
Here is the trailer for Coninuum:
