We believe that the films are a powerful tool to spark social change. Our films explore the social principles that influence the way we function individually and as part of society. Understanding how we all relate and the influences at play enables us to discover new ways of collaborating. We have reached millions of viewers via international television networks and university libraries. It’s now time to take the discussion directly to audiences who want to be a part of the conversation.

Our story began in 2009 when we produced our first film, a documentary about consciousness as part of The Anthropology of Consciousness, an exhibition by University College London (UCL). The film, like the exhibition, was interdisciplinary, and brought together artists and scientists to explore how our consciousness helps us make sense of the world and connect to each other.

This was the beginning of a journey bringing together cutting edge scientists, artists, philosophers, economists, writers and historians to explore subjects that affect our humanity.
