NOTES FROM THE FILMMAKERS

Synopsis

Seven years in the making, Unity is a documentary that explores humanity’s hopeful transformation from living by killing into living by loving.

It is a unique film about compassion for all beings. For all expressions of life and going beyond all separation based on form. For moving beyond perceiving opposites. Writer/Director Shaun Monson, collaborating with an astounding cast of 100 celebrity narrators presents a message of love, tragedy, and hope. All set against the backdrop of some of the most compelling 20th and 21st Century footage imaginable.

Presented in chapters, Unity takes an in-depth look at what it truly means to be human.  

The film explores our brief existence among the Cosmos in chapter one.  Chapter two moves on to the perceptions of our minds. Chapter three deals with the nature of our Body. Chapter four talks about the infinite capacity of our hearts. Finally, chapter four moves to the mysterious energy of the Soul. Initially, these chapters will appear unrelated to each other. But as the film progresses it becomes clear that all life is interconnected. Each chapter represents the totality of our mortal experience, which is only measured in decades.

With a cast of 100 voices all speaking as one voice, Unity is a genuinely cinematic experience unlike any other.

Warning: Graphic Content

Critic Reviews

“…Wilks launches into a larger study of fellow sportspeople and physical high-fliers who have switched to veganism and reaped the benefits: Schwarzenegger, record-holding strongman Patrik Baboumian, cyclist and Olympic medalist Dotsie Bausch and rugged Australian conservationist Damien Mander are among those showing up to make what was once dismissed as a wispy hippie fad look very robust indeed.” – Guy Lodge, Variety. Film Review: The Game Changers. 8 March 2018
