Influenced by the writings of spiritual leader Thich Nhat Hanh and current scientific research into biophilia, Meriel Lland’s film-poetry explores human and non-human interactions and interdependencies. Thich Nhat Hanh said: “Real change will only happen when we fall in love with our planet. Only love can show us how to live in harmony with nature and each other and save us from suffering the devastating effects of climate change. …We want to be connected. That is the meaning of love: to be at one.” In Fugitive Creatures we share just such a love story. We witness the small ways in which one person learns to cherish and nurture the world beyond himself. And in that process of appreciation he simultaneously nourishes and revives the person within.
Some Nature Books authored or co-authored by Meriel. A wonderful selection!
