“A Matter of Time” is a documentary presented by the Conservation Foundation that seeks to promote environmental awareness. The film takes a condensed, historical look at the evolution of humans from the Big Bang Theory to modern society. The tone is rather bleak, focusing on the deterioration of the natural environment as a result of over-exploitation and human evolution. The narrator presents the contradictory relationship between “man” and nature, with nature dealt the lesser hand.
