Plot summary

The Planet is a hot from the oven attempt to find answers about the truths and untruths of the alarming global changes that many claim are already in motion.

The visual style will unlock the alienated attitude many people have built up in relation to the subject: ”Please, not another bloody Climate Doomsday film!” The Planet is about much more than climate change - its about the Earth as a whole, it's about the overall global changes we are experiencing right now.

The challenge have been to create a new, fresh style to convey our story about a subject of which most people are more or less unaware - even though they certainly need to be more aware of it. The visual tone will from the very beginning turn the audience away from old perspectives on the problems in question. We are therefore using a lot of humour, visually provocative material, new rhythms, imaginative twists and turns, animation, short inserts conveyed with the help of the aesthetic of advertising, new and old archive material and our own striking nature photography.

Is it true that the Earth is a system disrupted beyond its normal limits? Are people the underlying cause of the changes? Can our activities really affect the Earth's systems? Is it really true that temperatures have risen and will continue to rise? That we should expect abrupt changes in the system? That natural disasters will become ever more frequent and dangerous? That the climate refugee will become the most common of all refugees? And if all this is true, what will the world look like in the future? Can we affect developments, or should we just adapt ourselves to this new world?

To find these answers we have been seeking out some of the world's leading experts in areas of interest. We have traveled to the places on Earth where the signs of global change are most apparent, and where supposedly proof may be found. We have also been into contact with people, who in one way or another can provide some tangible ideas about an imagined future - those who have been affected or will be affected.
