Movie Info

We've lost touch with nature.This disconnect hurts our health, dulls our spirit, and threatens our future. Narrated by Liam Neeson, Love Thy Nature is a cinematic immersion into the beauty and intimacy of our relationship with the natural world. With mesmerizing artistry and fascinating details, the film explores how nature nourishes us. Neeson is the voice of Homo Sapiens - our collective humankind - who, in the past few thousand years, has come to believe that we are separate from nature. This mind-set has caused us to disrupt billions of years of evolution, causing a mass extinction of species and threatening the survival of the human race. Love Thy Nature shows that a new era of connectedness with the natural world is key to ensuring our species' future. This era might just be dawning: A new science called biomimicry taps into nature's four billion years of R&D for some of the most brilliant cutting edge inventions, pointing to a new highly advanced technological age: The Biological Revolution. In the medical field, doctors are unveiling new findings on the role of nature to sustain and heal the human body. And experts have discovered that just spending time in nature promotes healing, emotional stability, connectedness, and even neurological health in children. Through Sapiens' journey, the film reveals how a relationship with nature ignites a sense of meaning and wonder so profound that it touches us at the very core of what it means to be human. Traversing the globe, Love Thy Nature shares the dazzling spectacles of our planet while revealing how a deeper connection with nature transforms us as people and communities. And that transformation inspires us not only to restore our ecosystems, but also our human family, and ourselves.

News & Interviews for Love Thy Nature

Critic Reviews for Love Thy Nature

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

With its twinkly piano and soul-stirring cinematography, "Love Thy Nature" feels like the visual equivalent of a hot oil spa massage - and leaves a residual effect that proves equally as fleeting.

May 5, 2016 | Full Review…

For all the information presented, the film is insufficient on details, instead stressing the fairly obvious importance of such things as eating natural foods and getting fresh air.

May 3, 2016 | Full Review…

Endless slow-motion footage of animals, plants and people rolls by. Hard realities, though, are nowhere to be found.

April 21, 2016 | Full Review…

Though the heavy-handed score is emotionally manipulative, Rokab alternates between hopeful and grim prognoses, mercifully providing a measure of hope and possibility that many films of this ilk do not.

April 19, 2016 | Full Review…

The woo about Gaia and such makes even the occasional hard science sound suspect, and questionable statements like people going to parks after 9/11 as proof of the healing power of nature don't help.

May 3, 2016 | Full Review…

In a style that's becoming typical of indie science documentaries, it mixes solid, well established material with poorly substantiated ideas and a tendency to whimsy, but at least it's pretty.
