You may be familiar with the work of Yann Arthus Bertrand, the world renowned aerial photographer behind the ‘Earth from Above’ books. His coffee-table books have always had an environmental cause in mind, but he has taken this one step further in his movie ‘Home’. Described as a ‘hymn for the planet’, the film takes those images to the big screen with a message about climate change, pollution and injustice. I haven’t had a chance to watch it all the way through yet, but it looks like a broad ranging and beautiful film. Mathieu Helie at Emergent Urbanism has a thoughtful review.
Home is being distributed free of charge online, in a series of languages. Visit the Youtube site here to watch the film, or the official site here, although really this deserves a larger screen than Youtube’s.
