The Story of Everything explores humanity’s rich and diverse explanations for the origins of life, and presents powerful solutions for the continued health of the planet at a time when we’re confronting the most severe crisis the earth has ever faced.  

 

A riveting performance that presses back against climate despair, The Story of Everything incorporates poetry, dance, music, art and special effects to condense 13.7 billion years into an hour and 45 minutes that asks and answers the question challenging humans from the very beginning:  “Where do we come from?” And even more

What the World Needs Now

We believe that children are the future who from an early age, and throughout their lives, need to explore their creativity and share it  with the world.

 

That’s why, now more than ever, amidst the haste and complexity of modern life lived in an increasingly digital landscape, we encourage parents, teachers and mentors everywhere to demand young people have time to fall in love with art, music and, of course, cinema.      

 

Life well-lived also needs to understand the joy of the natural world. It fertilizes the embracing of higher love, compassion and empathy for all humankind and all creatures of the Earth, Sea

and Sky.

 

Towards that end, the Maui Film Festival supports the MACC's Education Program and is thrilled to share the insightful and beautiful sentiments expressed by artist Fred Babb with you. Fred got it right.  Enjoy! (www.fredbabb.com)
