This film was inspired by the New Story Summit at the Findhorn Foundation: a sold-out multicultural, multigenerational inquiry into a new story for humanity, attended by change makers and activists from over 50 countries. A number of professional filmmakers gifted their skills during the summit and conducted a series of interviews with key speakers, each carrying a thread of the new story. This feature length documentary film brings together excerpts from some of these inspiring interviews, along with key moments from the summit itself.

The intent of the filmmakers is that the film be a conversation starter and an organizing tool to bring people together who are working toward the evolution of human consciousness and the cocreation of a new story for humanity.

Films don’t change the world–people do. The filmmakers hope this starts a conversation to which everyone here can contribute. We look forward to talking more after the film.
