Storyline

Made for screening at the U.S. Pavilion at the 1974 World's Fair in Spokane Washington, USA, which had a Native-American environmental theme, MAN BELONGS TO THE EARTH depicts the history of air, water, and earth pollution, and how environmentalists are trying to solve these problems using various technologies. Outlining the conflict between developmental progress and environmentalism, the final message of how to manage the Earth in the film is "We just have to decide what we want to do". In spite of the film's date, MAN BELONGS TO THE EARTH is still one of the most balanced, currently relevant, and thus best films about the environment ever made. Written by Dan Fiebiger

This IMAX documentary got created for the World's Fair in Spokane, Washington. Hosted by Chief Dan George (Little Big Man, The Outlaw Josey Wales) and narrated by James Whitmore, "Man Belongs to the Earth" addresses environmental issues and how we might deal with them. It's become more relevant than ever in the 21st century. I get the feeling that Godfrey Reggio may have gotten an idea for "Koyaanisqatsi"'s style from this documentary. Available on YouTube, so definitely check it out if you get a chance.
