Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet is the latest project fronted by David Attenborough for Netflix. The feature tells the stark story of the most important scientific discovery of our time – that humanity has pushed Earth beyond the boundaries that have kept Earth stable for 10,000 years, since the dawn of civilization.
The 75-minute film takes the audience on a journey of discovery of planetary thresholds we must not exceed, not just for the stability of our planet, but for the future of humanity. It offers up the solutions we can and must put in place now if we are to protect Earth’s life support systems.
“The science is clear and has been communicated for the past 30 years, and still we’re not moving in the right direction.” – Netflix
The film features Professor Johan Rockström, who volunteers his team to advise Netflix on its sustainability strategy. The project comes from Silverback Films. It is directed and produced by Jon Clay, executive produced by Alastair Fothergill, Keith Scholey, Colin Butfield, Jochen Zeitz and Kate Garwood. Original music is by Hannah Cartwright and Ross Tones.
This is Netflix’s third project with Sir David Attenborough, following Our Planet and David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet. Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet will launch on Netflix on June 4
