We trotted rather dutifully off to a screening of ‘Home’ by Yanns Arthus Bertrand last weekend. He is the guy who did that beautiful mega-photo essay of ‘Earth from Above’ a few years back.
Home is a feature length doco about the history of the earth and our impact on it. It gets pretty grim in the middle there, but it also focuses on solutions and what we can do. It is breathtakingly beautiful – to me the cinematography alone makes this a must see film. Our earth is so stunning!! I am a sook granted, and it made me terrifically misty eyed looking at the mess Papatuanuku is in.
Perhaps the coolest thing about the project is that it is free to view. The whole film is on YouTube. Watch it. I have posted a link on the right there so it is super easy for you.
