With some all-star narrators, this collection of short films pulls in any viewer. To explore the earth’s landscapes, is to be in awe of it and these films depict that awe quite well.

Our Earth is a fascinating place that we all must treasure. Even more exciting is the wondrous worlds beyond ours. In one film, we explore the story of four female African American mathematicians at NASA. How did they start out as human computers and expand to the forefront of engineering efforts? Narrated by Octavia Spencer. In the last film, set around Earth Day, a city boy has an unexpectedly magical encounter with planet Earth one day at a museum and takes this experience outdoors for a brand-new perspective, in his own backyard. Narrated by Meryl Streep.
