A hymn for the planet. A people’s project. A worldwide event.
These are notations for Yann Arthus-Bertrand movie HOME. Yann Arthus-Bertrand is a french photographer, who also created GoodPlanet, a non-profit organization which is dedicated to the promotion of sustainable development, his leitmotiv, through all his different projects. And HOME is his newest project.
“…HOME is more than a documentary with a message, it is a magnificent movie in its own right. Every breathtaking shot shows the Earth – our Earth – as we have never seen it before. Every image shows the Earth’s treasures we are destroying and all the wonders we can still preserve.”
But the project has some more special features. You will be able to see the movie on TV, in the cinema and even in the internet. The whole movie will be shown on youtube.
“June 5th 2009, World Environment Day has been chosen as the highly symbolic date for this simultaneous, and free of charge, release on every format: movie theatre, TV, DVD and Internet. The aim of director Yann Arthus-Bertrand, distributor Luc Besson and François-Henri Pinault, chairman and CEO of PPR, the film’s official sponsor, is to reach the widest possible audience, and to convince us all of our individual and collective responsibility towards the planet.”
I can’t wait for June 5th. (via)
