“We didn’t inherit the earth from our parents, we’re borrowing it from our children” ~ Chief Seattle

Sinchi Tribe, pllek and Down to Earth present an outdoor screening of a life-changing documentary about the Keepers of the Earth: tribal communities all over the planet that have listened for many centuries and understand our future planets’ needs. Now it’s our turn to listen to THEM.

TIME: 19.30 (doors open 19.00)
Tickets online: €10,00 (limited tickets available at the door)

Leaving the rat race behind, a family of five embarks on the journey of a lifetime. They travel the ends of the earth searching for a new perspective on life. During five years on six continents they seek out tribal sages never filmed or interviewed before. DOWN to EARTH reveals the deep wisdom they found and its power to transform lives. DOWN to EARTH is both a wake up call and a resurgence of hope for our world to come.

Down to Earth is a thought-provoking cinematic experience of the ancient, earthly wisdom. It’s taking us on an inner journey, reconnecting us with our source and the mutual path we are walking. From the heart of the Amazon, to the jungles of India, from the Australian outback to the Kalahari Dessert, from the Andes to the banks of Lake Superior, we meet one-to-one with the Earth Keepers. They have retained a natural balance and live in harmony with All That Is. Having lived in hiding for centuries, the Keepers of the Earth see that now is the time to step forward and share their insights and wisdom with those who are ready to listen.


The screening takes 90 minutes and will be introduced by both Dick Roelofsen from Down to Earth & Founder of Sinchi Tribe Tom Wheeler.
