METAMORPHOSIS bears witness to a moment of profound change: the loss of one world, and the birth of another.
Forest fires consume communities, species vanish, and entire ecosystems collapse. Economic growth, tied to increased speed of resource extraction, has created a machine with the capacity to destroy all life.
But this crisis is also an opportunity for transformation.
Through a tidal flow of stunning images, Metamorphosis carves a path from the present to the future.
Woven together with stories of creativity and reinvention from artists, scientists, thinkers, and young children are creative, systemic solutions for our planet, and for our communities.
Metamorphosis cinematically delves into how humanity is being transformed in new ways by the environmental crises we have created.

Psychedelics in the Age of AI
A word that will help you better understand what is called artificial intelligence, is algorithm. Whether we realize it or not, our lives are now awash with these helpful and sometimes pesky little pieces of code that govern much of our lives. Internet searches, health-monitoring watches, the IoT, Web phones and all of the apps that we use each day are all forms of AI, and they have an impact on much of our lives. With each day bringing more of these digital critters into our world, is there a way to escape their ultimate mission to totally control us? Lorenzo Hagerty thinks so. He sincerely believes that there is still hope for us humans to escape the fate of the Borg. What is more, he sees the intelligent use of psychedelic medicines as one of the answers.
