The DOCUMENTARY

A powerful tale of Interconnection

Becoming California will explore our past, present and future relationship with California’s natural environment. With an original score by noted jazz composer Pat Metheny, we present a monumental tale of colliding tectonic plates, the community of life, human exploitation, coexistence and more. Astonishing videography and photorealistic 3D animations will make this program one of the most compelling of its kind.

In Three Parts
Assembling California —The Power of Time and Space
California’s natural world is a place of astounding complexity, diversity, abundance and interconnection. Assembling California will tell the unfinished story of the physical and biological assembly of California, from its earliest origins to the communities we live in today.

Reinventing California — The Power of Many
We trace the patterns of natural resource exploitation– how culture, population growth and the marvels of technology have accelerated environmental change beyond our intent. Reinventing California will focus on disintegration: the wholeness of the natural world reduced to a matrix of disconnected parts.

Becoming California — The Power of One
We challenge traditions that have led to the fragmentation of the natural world and our alienation from it. Becoming California envisions a new force of environmental change– one of reunification, partnership and coexistence.
