In our Nature Connection Film Trailer Showcase, we will share some of the many amazing films that tell the story of the children and nature movement from different perspectives.

Love Thy Nature

In the Light Productions, Inc.

Narrated by Liam Neeson, Love Thy Nature points to how deeply we’ve lost touch with nature, taking viewers on a cinematic journey through the beauty and intimacy of our vital relationship with the natural world. The film shows that a renewed connection with nature is key both to our health and to solving our environmental crisis. http://www.lovethynature.com

Children and Nature
Isabel Barros, Instituto Alana (Brazil)

This 5’20” film intends to present the issue of children and nature. It explores, in such a delicate and delightful way, the benefits of connecting children with nature-- for both children and for nature. https://vimeo.com/199354828

All The Time In The World
Drift Productions Inc.

The multi-award winning All The Time In The World is an inspiring, humorous and family-friendly documentary that chronicles life's natural unfolding when a family tries to live by the seasons instead of by the clock. Featuring the insights for three children (aged 10, 8 and 4), a family leaves the comforts of home to live for 9 months in the remote wilderness of the Canadian North.  They spend the long northern winter living in a small cabin with no road access, no electricity, no running water, no internet and not a single watch or clock. http://allthetimeintheworld.ca
