“Will you survive the transition of human industrial civilization happening now due to peak oil and climate change? Can you see the forest for the trees, the earth for the dream, the universe for the seed? Anima Mundi is an innovative documentary about the planetary animal called Gaia and the human animal we deny, we deny at our own peril, yet a peril that is perfect in design”.

Many people do not realize that permaculture is much more than about growing fruit and vegetables, it is a whole view incorporating the environment, energy, resources, housing, technology, healthcare, education, the arts, spirituality, psychology, philosophy and agriculture. It provides a realistic alternative for our future sustainability, a gentler way that treads lightly on our Mother Earth. Anima Mundi is a positive film though it’s deep message could be missed by many in a world society that believes human’s are wrong, evil and bad. To quote John Seed, “Whatever we’re doing to the Earth, the Earth is doing to Herself”. If humans are a part of nature then what we are doing is natural, yet not all things ‘natural’ are good for us, like mercury.
And many people do not realize that Anima Mundi is not a big budget documentary, it was put together by one person (a first film) with little money, no industry connections, a clapped out car and a home-video camera. As a production, Anima Mundi fits within many permaculture principles; it has a very low embodied energy, it took minimal resources to produce, I made do with what was local and/or at hand, and I grew something that flourished from what was once a barren landscape. Anima Mundi is not a film that offers false-hope solutions, it is a practical film about the nature of reality, and the harsh and beautiful reality of nature. PCD
