Narrated by Liam Neeson, Love Thy Nature is a cinematic journey into the beauty and intimacy of our relationship with the natural world. 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. Through Sapiens’ journey, the film reveals how a connection with nature ignites a sense of meaning and wonder so profound that it touches the very core of what it means to be human. Interweaving mesmerizing imagery and interview footage, Love Thy Nature is a guided tour of our relationship with nature that proposes new approaches to a sustainable future.
