Home is a 2009 documentary by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. The film is almost entirely composed of aerial shots of various places on Earth. It shows the diversity of life on Earth and how humanity is threatening the ecological balance of the planet.
Climate Change Effects And Destructive Consumption
We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have less then 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. Look at the effect climate change and our consumption have on our only planet. HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.
For this purpose, HOME is free without copyright made possible by the PPR Group. Distributor EuropaCorp also pledged not to make any profit from this film.
The English version is narrated by Glenn Close. Multiple language are available.
Home was filmed in various stages due to the expanse of the portrayed areas. Taking over eighteen months to complete the film, director and camera man Yann Arthus-Bertrand, a camera engineer and a pilot flew in a small helicopter through various regions in over fifty countries.
The filming was done using high-definition “Cineflex” cameras which were suspended from a gyro-stabilized sphere from rails on the base of the helicopter. These cameras, originally manufactured for army firing equipment, reduce vibrations helping to capture ultra smooth images.
After almost every flight, recordings were immediately checked to ensure they were usable. When the filming stage was complete, the crew had over 488 hours of footage to edit.
