Eye of the Future


Planet Earth calls five children of U.N. ambassadors from around the world to imagine a new sustainable future for our global society. The nine-year-olds play happily with an earth ball, unaware of threats to our global systems. They discover a magic portal and before them appears a dark ominous sphere — the earth’s center. Their goal is to work together to reduce the global carbon footprint. Through the tangible carbon savings displayed on an earth counter, the children become more encouraged and enthusiastic about achieving their goal. Earth systems have already reached an urgent tipping point, and only a global response to halt the ongoing destruction and degradation of natural environments will stop an irreversible climate crisis. The essence of the film is about envisioning a positive sustainable future through our most prized assets — children.

Dove Review

“Eye of the Future” is a film about hope — the hope, in this case, being the future of our planet Earth. Five children from diverse backgrounds meet to imagine sustaining and maintaining the planet. The discussion ranges from Global Climate and PPM rates, to solar panels, the collection of rain water, and the turbines farmers use. The film showcases various scenes from Northern India, the Middle East, the South American Andes, Western Africa, and other countries, and the landscapes and beauty are breathtaking.

Discarded tires, nuclear warheads, radioactive waste, and trash are all problems discussed in the film, and the children explore how to utilize these various things for the good of the planet. Recycling is one of the important themes of the film.

We love seeing the children involved in discussing the future of the planet and making the best use of our resources. We are happy to present “Eye of the Future” our Dove Family Approved Seal for all ages. This is an entertaining and educational film for your entire family!
