"The title Unity signifies the intention of the content. It's not so much to entertain, like a past-time, but rather turn something 'on' inside you that has been suppressed or forgotten by the mask that society or tradition puts upon us," said Shaun Monson, Director. "But more than that the film also helps relate us to the mystery of existence, to all of existence, which we are merely a part. And as such it demonstrates an interesting power for a film, which not only engages but has a transforming effect on the consciousness of humankind."
"I am thrilled to be working with Shaun and the Nation Earth team on this project," said Mark Rupp, President & CEO SpectiCast. "Unity is an extraordinary and important film that explores the contrast between empathy and apathy that exists between all living things."
"We at Fathom realize the importance of sharing this impactful documentary with U.S. audiences," said John Rubey, CEO of Fathom Events. "We hope that moviegoers will walk away from the event with a new perspective about the world around them."
