HOME - Amazing documentary about Earth and our future

home-screen1

This past week the non-profit film HOME was released in every format, including in movie theaters, on television, DVD/Blu-ray Disc and the internet, on the same day in over 50 countries in an effort to spread its message to the widest audience possible.

"We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth's climate", Yann Arthus-Bertrand, director and photographer of the film, said.

"The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being."

HOME is directed by the internationally renowned French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, produced the famous director Luc Besson and narrated by five-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close (Dangerous Liaisons).

The film is shot in high definition in 54 countries and 120 locations over 217 days and will use a "first-time ever all-aerial filming style" highlighting "the Earth's wonders as well as its wounds and provides a necessary perspective to approach the changing environment".

Home will be available on DVD for $19.98. But you can watch it for free in high definition over at YouTube.

It's an amazingly beautiful and yet scary documentary about our home. It sort of reminds me about the Swedish documentary "The Planet" but with fewer facts. Watch it!

I saw the documentary about 2 months ago. I got really scared when I realized the transition made from wonders of our planet to the waste of the resources. It was a very powerful message but I'm afraid that's a little to late. We are greedy and we can't seem to stop or won't. It's very sad because this will have repercussions only on ourselves.
