The Global Brain (1983)

Director: Peter Russell
Producer: Peter Russell, Chris Hall
Genre: Documentary
Country: United Kingdom
Language: English

The idea of the Earth as an integrated self-regulated living organism.

Based on the themes in the book The Global Brain, this moving audio-visual presentation explores the “Gaia hypothesis.” It points to the fragile regulating system that exists between all living and non-living things with the aim of showing people that recognizing the interconnectedness of all things, helps us to become more conscious of our daily actions and ultimately discover a more peaceful way to live with ourselves, each other and the planet. Well ahead of the internet and information and communications technologies’ boom, Peter Russell observed “if Earth is a collective, self-regulating living organism, what then is the potential of humanity as seen through the eyes of the planet?”
