A documentary film by Cyrus Sutton, Island Earth tells a rich tale of a young, indigenous scientist’s struggle for truth between science and tradition as he enters an industry that many feel is threatening his homeland. His complex journey through the inner workings of GMO (genetically modified organism) chemical companies and traditional Hawaiian elders reveals ancient values that can save our future.
