Focus Years: 2012 | Country: Finland
"Balance of Life" is a film about lifeâ€™s and humankind's fight to find balance between our own evolving life style and the nature of the planet we inhabit. The human race is drifting further and further away from its real roots and from what being human is really about. The speed of development has increased to a state where humans have a hard time keeping up. We find ourselves in a situation where both our own and the planetsâ€™ well-being is severely threatened. As a last resort, humankind is relying on faith to find the balance. Is faith the last defense of man, or is this world guided by forces greater than us? Is this force God, evolution or just the mere sum of coincidences that formed the universe, the natural order and the laws of physics?
"Balance of Life" is a dissection of the world we live in, where man has arrived to a point where finding balance is beginning to be too late. It is a story about humanity and what being human is about. Will the balance be found from constant progress, the bible or from directing our attention to where we came from â€“ nature?
"Balance of Life" is a story of the earth we all share. It is a one man and his camera's journey in a world filled with complete opposites, balance, imbalance and people traveling along the right and wrong paths. Who in the end is to decide what path is the right one? What is the invisible force that guides us, and is it taking us on the right path?
