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. 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.

--Shaun Monson[1]

Unity is a documentary that explores humanity's transformation, presented in five chapters: "Cosmic", "Mind", "Body", "Heart" and "Soul".[6]




On June 26, 2013, Shaun Monson started a Kickstarter campaign to complete and market the film, with the goal of reaching "a minimum of $800,000 to complete post-production and release the film within a year", but the fundraising was unsuccessful.[8] After Monson's first installment, Earthlings (2005), he spent roughly seven years developing, writing and producing Unity.[4][6]


The film is produced by Monson and Melissa Danis with Nation Earth and will be distributed by SpectiCast and Fathom Events.[1][3][4]

The film was also recorded as an audiobook read by Monson. The audiobook is an unabridged version of the Unity script and is about five hours long.[9]
