Brief Synopsis of the film:

‘Gaia,’ who was once the Mother Goddess Earth in Ancient Greece, has come back into our consciousness through the physicist James Lovelock’s ‘Gaia Hypothesis’, which proposed that Earth was a self-regulating system – that is, a Living Being. The film traces – through art, poetry, and the changing philosophies of the human relation to our Earth – how the instinctive union with all life gradually diminished over the centuries – culminating in the so-called ‘Age of Enlightenment’ when the human mind defined itself as superior to the source of its being. In response to this, William Blake and other Romantic poets, Physicists such as Einstein and Bohm, Visionaries like Thomas Berry, and Ecologists everywhere, among many others, have all contributed to Gaia’s return to the sacred dimension which the Ancient Greeks understood, and which we, in our time, are asked to remember in ourselves: ‘To a Man of Imagination, Nature is Imagination itself,’ Blake says.

JULES CASHFORD has a background in Philosophy and Literature and is a member of AJA. She has published many books, including The Myth of the Goddess: Evolution of an Image (co-authored with Anne Baring (Penguin, 1993); A translation of The Homeric Hymns for Penguin Classics; The Moon: Symbol of Transformation, as well as coediting, with Thomas Singer and Craig san Roque, of Ancient Greece, Modern Psyche (Routledge, 2018). She has made two films on the Early Netherlandish Painter Jan van Eyck, and three films on ‘Gaia’: Gaia, Mother Goddess Earth of Ancient Greece, The Return of Gaia, and The Eleusinian Mysteries for the Dartington School of Myth.
