It's been a year since Yan Arthus Bertrand released his documentary film HOME. With it's breathtaking cinematography (almost entirely aerial shots), Home shows us the current state of our planet. It showcases different life forms that inhabit it and how every single one of them are linked and interdependent. Not one organism can be self sufficient. Inevitably, HOME also goes into how the human species is threatening the delicate ecological balance of the planet.
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. 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. If a year ago you missed the largest film release in history, no problem, the film was made under a creative commons license, It has no official copyright and it is still available for free on Youtube.
Here is a lecture Yan Arthus Bertrand gave at TED in February 09.
