Home Place Series
Life Cycles
Exploring Human Ecology with J. Stan Rowe

Life is a property of Earth.

A printer-friendly version of this page 26 minutes
Directed by Robert J. Long
Produced by Waterhen Film Productions
Narrated by Liona Boyd

LIFE CYCLES, the second program in the "Home Place" series, explores the problems encountered when we try to distinguish between living and non-living parts of the Earth. Attributes of organisms which are recognized as being characteristic of "life" are also found in larger systems - ecosystems and the earth itself. Everything on earth is linked by the cycling of matter and flows of energy, making it impossible to distinguish living and non-living parts. Life is a property of Earth, expressed in organisms and other incredible phenomena.

Other titles in the series are:

Inside-Outside - Replaces the human-centered concept of environment with ecosystems.

Partnership - Changing our present exploitative relationship with Earth to one of partnership.

Going Home - Ways to reconnect with the Earth.

"This excellent series forces the viewer to take a hard look at our exploitive, damaging role as humans in the Earth's ecosystems...The narrative is easy to understand, yet it addresses these important issues in a sophisticated and thorough manner...highly appropriate addition to public, school, and academic libraries."
Rue Herbert, University of South Florida, MC Journal

"As much philosophy as science went into these thought-provoking programs. The end result is an impelling video series of value in any library collection."
Teacher Librarian
