THE FILM

Overview a short film that explores this phenomen of the The Overview Effect who is a cognitive awareness who affect astronauts and cosmonauts during space flight, often while viewing the Earth from orbit or from the lunar surface. Through interviews with five astronauts who have experienced the Overview Effect the film tries to explain what is happens. The film also features insights from commentators and thinkers on the wider implications and importance of this understanding for society, and our relationship to the environment.


THE BOOK

Inspired by the "Overview Effect" - a sensation that astronauts experience when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole - the breathtaking, high definition satellite photographs in OVERVIEW offer a new way to look at the landscape that humans have shaped.
