(Posted 28th April 2021)
Netflix will this summer release a major environmental documentary, narrated by Sir David Attenborough: ‘BREAKING BOUNDARIES: THE SCIENCE OF OUR PLANET‘.
The film features the work and follows the scientific journey of Professor Johan Rockström, an internationally recognized scientist on global sustainability issues. He is the founder of the Stockholm Resilience Centre, the Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Professor in Earth System Science at the University of Potsdam and Chief Scientific Advisor for Conservation International.
Johan led the development of the Planetary Boundaries framework for human development in the current era of rapid global change. He is a leading scientist on global water resources, with more than 25 years experience in applied water research in tropical regions, and more than 150 research publications in fields ranging from applied land and water management to global sustainability.
In addition to his research endeavours, which have been widely used to guide policy, Rockström is active as a consultant for several governments and business networks. He also acts as an advisor for sustainable development issues at international meetings including the World Economic Forum, the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Conferences (UNFCCC).
Professor Rockström chairs the advisory board for the EAT Foundation and the Earth League and has been appointed as chair of the Earth Commission.
Indikate Productions, founded in 2015 by Film, Television & Documentary Producer Kate Garwood, who is married to Jochen Zeitz, specializes in producing socially impactful content in both the fiction and non-fiction space, including the feature film RACE, the real-life story of legendary African-American athlete Jesse Owens and the 1936 Nazi Olympics, released by Focus Features in 2016, and Seberg, the true story of American actress Jean Seberg and her relationship with the Black Panther party, which premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals in 2019, released by Amazon Studios. Upcoming projects are the feature documentary RANGER, depicting the journey of 12 women as they undergo a profound rite of passage to become East Africa’s first all-female anti-poaching unit, to be released in 2022.
The film looks at the discovery of the planetary thresholds we must not exceed, not just for the stability of our planet but 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.
