Regenerating Life is a feature-length documentary that takes an ecological approach to unraveling the climate crisis. It demonstrates that nature – the vast, interconnected web of biodiversity that exists on our planet – regulates and balances Earth’s climate, and visits people who are working on solutions to repair the damage done to forests, fields, wetlands, and oceans.
