Unity is the latest documentary from Shaun Monson, the writer and director of Earthlings, and features an unprecedented cast of over 100 celebrity narrators including Jennifer Aniston, Martin Sheen, Helen Mirren, Joaquin Phoenix, Russell Simmons and more.
Seven years in the making, the Unity examines the many reasons why we can’t seem to get along with each other after thousands of years sharing the same planet, exploring humanity’s hopeful transformation from living-by-killing into living-by-loving. It’s a unique film about compassion for all beings, or all “expressions of life,” that goes beyond “separation based on form” and perceiving opposites. Read more
Shaun Monson, collaborating with an astounding cast of narrators (a number never before gathered in the history of filmmaking), 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, mortal, and incarnate in this world by exploring our brief existence among the Cosmos (Chapter I), the perceptions of our Mind (Chapter II), the nature of our Body (Chapter III), the infinite capacity of our Heart (Chapter IV), and ultimately the mysterious energy of the Soul (Chapter V). Initially, these chapters may 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 measured in decades.
With a cast of 100 voices all speaking together as one, Unity is a genuine cinematic experience unlike any other.
