Movie Description:

"When I first encountered First Nations people, they told me we are made of the four sacred elements: earth, air, fire and water. As I reflected on that, I realized we've framed the environmental problem the wrong way. There's no environment "out there" for us to interact with. We are the environment, because we are the Earth. For me, that began a whole shift in the way that I looked at the issues that confront us and the way we live on this planet." --David Suzuki

Earth + Air + Fire + Water = Life. In a time when people are thirsty for honesty, inspiration, meaning and global change, comes renowned scientist and visionary Dr. David Suzuki, delivering the most important message of his career: what it means to be fully human in our interconnected universe. The film's stunning motion graphics transform Dr. Suzuki's wisdom into a complete sensory experience, literally creating new worlds and new ways of seeing. Suzuki Speaks will leave you feeling renewed, challenged and alive.
