ABOUT THE MOVIE
The Story of Earth is an Australian documentary for Giant Screen and IMAX® directed by Russell Scott and written by Scott and Wain Fimeri. The documentary, narrated by Rachel Ward, centres on how contemporary geology has potentially led to a new understanding of how life on Earth came to be.
This is the story of a remarkable planet, unlike any other yet found across deep space.
Born from dying stars, it was sculpted by violent collisions in space. Yet, in an epic journey, this hostile ball of molten rock transformed itself into a nurturing environment. From it emerged forms of life, none of which have been found anywhere else in the universe.
That planet is not millions of light years away either. You are standing on it right now. It is Earth.
Stunning and complex visualisations based on the latest scientific modelling will take audiences back in time to the origins of our planet as we explore the extraordinary chain of events that made life not only possible but sustainable.
Journey forward to today, to meet a team of geologists travelling the globe looking for clues that help us piece together what is, as far as we know, a unique story in our universe.
