One Night Only!
Directed by photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand and narrated by Glenn Close, HOME takes you on a visually stunning, spectacular voyage around the world. It is a unique film that approaches the current debate about climate change from a whole new angle, giving viewers the opportunity to see for themselves how our earth is changing. Going well beyond the scientific reports, charts and graphs, this film is an inspiration that speaks to our hearts and touches our souls. Spanning 54 countries and 120 locations, all seen from the air, the film captures the Earth’s most amazing landscapes, showcasing its incomparable beauty and acknowledging its vulnerability. HOME is a compelling emotional reminder of
what is at stake: the Earth, in all its beauty, and the people who live on it.
HOME is the first major film about climate change that has been made using only aerial photography. The film marks artist and activist, Yann Arthus-Betrand’s feature film directorial debut. HOME is a non-for-profit film project, produced by the French film director and producer Luc Besson (Europacorp), Denis Carot (Elzevir Films) and supported by the PPR group.
HOME: THE FILMMAKER
The man behind the film is the French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Founder and President of the Goodplanet Foundation and Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Program (www.yannarthusbertrand.org). HOME is his crowning achievement, capping a lifetime of environmental efforts. Three years in the making, the film
draws on his experience as an aerial photographer and captures the glory of the Earth as it has never before been seen.
HOME: AN EXCEPTIONAL EVENT
More than a film, HOME was conceived as a gift to the public and has been a major event all over the globe. Since World Environment Day, June 5, 2009, when it was released worldwide across all media platforms – theater, television, DVD and Internet – more than 400 million people have watched the 118-minute film. On the day of its release, free screenings took
place across 5 continents. Today, the film has been translated into many languages, broadcast on numerous television
channels and seen over 15 million times on YouTube.
