An Original Screenplay by Sandy Ibrahim
3000 BC - Inanna, the powerful and alluring Sumerian queen, defies the Sky Gods and abandons her throne to comfort her widowed sister, Ereshkigal, Queen of the Underworld. After a gruelling and humiliating descent, Inanna is sentenced to die, but the Goddess is not so easy to kill.
who are we now?
We are the current incarnation of a species which has roamed this Earth for over 200,000 years. About two-hundred and fifty generations ago, we settled into civilizations. Less than three hundred years ago, we entered the first industrial revolution. We alive today are witnessing and participating in a mass extinction event caused by an exploding population and our unquestioning dominance over the natural world. We are the generation tasked with reframing our understanding of ourselves and restoring this beautiful planet.
How hard can that be? (smile)
We dare to empty our cupboards of plastic food and tend to our own gardens instead. We dare to stand for truth and walk our own road to find it. We are finding the dark places that have held us hostage. We defy expectations. We are focused and determined. We will turn things upside down. We’ve had it with status quo. We are warriors. Rebels. Stewards of the future. Healers. Some say we are Gaia’s immune system being awakened by the planet herself. We may make jackets for caterpillars, be lawyers, teachers, architects, mummas, scientists, planners, writers or dancers. Whatever we do, we are faithful to Life and are weaving our threads back in. We pause. We let go. We are fine with not knowing. We listen to the heartbeat of the world. We are the peony blooming, the wave cresting, the spark of creativity that created the whole damn thing — and here five minutes to midnight, on wobbly feet – we have arrived.
