Directed by photographer and environmentalist 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 the viewer the opportunity to see 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.
HOME is the first ever 100% aerial footage film, a trademark of Arthus-Bertrand, world-renown for his photography and concern for ecological sustainability. The film tells the story of our planet’s evolution in sweeping unique images shot in over fifty countries around the world that few people have been privileged to glimpse on the big screen.
Set against a stirring, sometimes haunting, original sound track and narrated by award-winning actress Glenn Close, the feature-length documentary will be shown at no charge in accord with Arthus-Bertrand’s idea that the film should be free. To help support the Sebastiani Theatre, donations will be encouraged.
The purpose of the film is to arouse the world’s attention to the incredible challenges we’re facing as our ever-increasing demand of natural resources far out paces supplies. A post-film discussion will focus on developing local solutions and building community resilience.
Many thanks to the Sebastiani Theatre, the Sonoma Ecology Center, Bouverie Preserve, Wellington Vineyards, Sonoma International Film Festival, our volunteer team and many others for making this event possible!
