“We didn’t inherit the Earth from our parents, we borrow it from our children.” - Chief Seattle
Down to Earth follows a London family, breaking away from society to find a new perspective on life. For five years, travelling six continents, parents Renata Heinen and Rolf Winters and their 3 children aged 10, 7 and 6 go on a journey of discovery to capture the wisdom of the ‘Earth Keepers’. They find indigenous communities who have retained a natural balance and live in harmony with their surroundings, far removed from the technologically focused cultures of today. There is no crew, no production team, just one backpack and camera each.
