  1. “Planetary” is a feature-length documentary premiered at SXSW in Austin TX last month and featured for “Earth Hour” at National Geographic HQ in Washington DC (co-hosted by WWF). The release is scheduled for “Earth Day” (22/Apr/2015) when it will be screened around the world – principally in the USA but also London, Scotland, Australia, Argentenia, Liberia …and more signing up every day. The film seems to slot in with much of the stuff of yours that I’ve read. The (sort of) trailer “Overview” has had over 7Million viewings on Vimeo.com. I’m sure you’ll like the long and the short of it. Regards, Ken Reid (Director Guy Reid’s father; his mother is much more pushy!). Visit: Planetarycollective.com
