No … we are not planning to renovate our house or to build a new one.

Home is the title of a new “green-awareness” movie created by created by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. “Home” is an environmental documentary that is available today worldwide … in open-air spaces as well as theaters, TV, DVD, and the Internet at www.youtube.com/homeproject (untill 14th of June).

I just saw the film …. it has awesome areal images and a great soundtrack. But at the same time it gives you something to think about. “In 200,000 years on earth, … humanity has upset the balance of the planet. Humanity has barely 10 years to reverse the trend.” It shows incredible views of areas where the pollution, earth disruption and catastrophic climate changes are taking place. I got amazed watching it but at the same time I got worried …. and then you hear the narrated words by Glenn Close …. “It’s too late to be a pessimist.

What is the film about? In one sentence:
It is about the creation of earth and how we are handling it now.

It took almost three years to do this mega-movie, …. shot over 217 days in 54 countries, … providing 488 hours of footage.

So … click on the image to go to Youtube and watch the film (in High Definition – HD) …. but be advised you will need to spend 1h30 of your time to watch it. It is worth it. After watching it … I would appreciate to read your comment about it.
