PLANET EARTH, a music-art video written, directed and produced by Tarik Haddad and filmed in Jordan and San Francisco, dwells on the beautiful and bountiful planet we live on and share with a myriad of animal species and fauna. Planet Earth is our home. Can we, as a global society, find the righteous path to making progress without destroying and polluting the oceans and forests, the air and land—the sacred elements that breathe life into all beings? Not enough is being done. Will the planet survive or will we, in our collective greed and apathy, destroy Mother Earth and the sustenance she so generously offers?
