The movie projects a radical alternative to apocalyptic doom and gloom. Directed by Emmy Award nominee Joao Amorim, the film follows journalist Daniel Pinchbeck, author of the bestselling 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, on a quest for a new paradigm that integrates the archaic wisdom of tribal cultures with the scientific method. As conscious agents of evolution, we can redesign post-industrial society on ecological principles to make a world that works for all. Rather than breakdown and barbarism, 2012 will herald the birth of a regenerative planetary culture, where collaboration replaces competition, where exploration of psyche and spirit becomes the new cutting edge, replacing the sterile materialism that has pushed our world to the brink.

Interviews with design scientists, anthropologists, physicists such as Dean Radin, Barbara Marx Hubbard, John Todd and Paul Stamets and celebrities such as Sting, Ellen Page and Gilberto Gil.

We have officially entered the time where changes are happening so fast that it takes a film like this to remind us we are on the cusp of a completely new world.

This film is an excellent piece for people who may be new to "the 2012 phenomenon", and is an especially welcome reprieve from the incessant doom-and-gloom prognostications of planetary destruction. Instead, this film focuses on the fact that we stand at a crossroads in the way we live, technically, politically, spiritually, the works. With simple actionable ways to participate in the coming shift, it offers a glimpse into the new world being born.

It is inspiring, informative, and empowering. A big thank-you to Daniel Pinchbeck and the whole team who worked on this film!
