We are in the midst of a global crisis of perspective. We have forgotten the undeniable truth that every living thing is connected. We are truly planetary citizens. Join us for a powerful film screening of PLANETARY and a conversation on Sustainable Investing. PLANETARY is an inspirational cross-continental cinematic journey that challenges viewers to reconsider our relationship with our home as well as the urgency to shift our mindset in the face of climate change. In a stunning visual exploration, this documentary film interweaves imagery from NASA Apollo and Space Shuttle missions with visions of the Milky Way, Buddhist monasteries in the Himalayas, and the cacophonous sounds of downtown Tokyo and Manhattan, with intimate interviews from renowned astronauts and environmental experts.  PLANETARY sheds a new light on the ways our worldview is profoundly affecting life on our planet. It invites us to meet the challenge of our time: to participate in the great transition to a sustainable, equitable and restorative economy that meets the needs and realities of all. PLANETARY also asks us to rethink who we really are, to reconsider our relationship with ourselves, each other and the world around us – to remember that we are PLANETARY.  PLANETARY Associate Producer Jeff Gitterman, is also the co-founding partner of Gitterman Wealth Management, LLC, and a thought leader in the field of Sustainable, Impact, and ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) Investing. Jeff will be on hand to participate in a discussion and Q&A following a screening of a special 20 minutes short version of the film.

Finding Joe is a movie about the inevitable and often unexpected crossroads at which we often find ourselves in life -- the metaphorical fork in the road that forces a choice. It challenges us to leave what is familiar and journey into the unknown, to quest for something more. On this journey we generally have to face and overcome obstacles that forge personal transformation which ultimately brings us home to ourselves, but in a more highly realized fashion. It’s a movie that both details the life’s work of Joseph Campbell, and inspires the audience to take a leap of faith—to endeavor to live an epic life. Finding Joe also reveals how transcendent myths brim with various metaphors related to challenge and breakthrough, like the of slaying dragons, killing wicked witches, finding treasures and meeting wise teachers. Each hero’s journey illustrates a quest that leads to the holy grail of self-discovery. The movie also makes plain that one can never “win the ring” without one’s own effort -- no hero receives “the boon,” or gift of transcendence without having won it for oneself by overcoming inertial forces, especially fear. Campbell was a highly esteemed mythologist. He studied the whole corpus of world mythology—all cultures, ancient to modern. His research and creative insight led him to discover a pattern out of which all myths related to human evolution are constructed. That pattern he called “the hero’s journey.” Join us as Finding Joe takes us on the ultimate hero’s journey: the journey of self discovery.  It’s truly an inspirational and life enriching film -- running time 80minutes.
