8 Billion Angels explores the birth of mankind and its relentless growth and pursuit to harness, exploit, and ultimately dominate Mother Earth. The film examines the evidence pointing toward controversial questions:
- Are there too many people on Planet Earth?
- Are we and all Earth’s creatures destined for extinction, or do we have the will to turn the tide?
Unlike other environmental documentaries, which tend to focus on a single environmental issue like CO2, the depletion of marine life, animal poaching, or global warming, 8 Billion Angels will present compelling data and stories from a comprehensive set of scientific sources, including environmental activists, everyday citizens, and respected scientists to make the case that, in order to save our planet, change must be made at a more fundamental level.
