"HOME" released today

Today on World Environment Day, "HOME" by director Yann Arthus-Bertrand, is simultaneous released in over 50 Countries, and free of charge, release on every format: movie theatre, TV, DVD and Internet.

"HOME is an ode to the planet's beauty and its delicate harmony. Through the landscapes of 54 countries captured from above, Yann Arthus-Bertrand takes us on an unique journey all around the planet, to contemplate it and to understand it. But 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. "From the sky, there's less need for explanations". Our vision becomes more immediate, intuitive and emotional. HOME has an impact on anyone who sees it. It awakens in us the awareness that is needed to change the way we see the world. (HOME embraces the major ecological issues that confront us and shows how everything on our planet is interconnected.)"

This is an amazing project and movie. Reminds me a bit on "Koyaanisqatsi"
If you have the chance watch it on the 'big screen' in a cinema nearby. Unfortunately I've not found a direct download site for the HD version so I've to watch it on YT. You can skip the first minute which is advertising in some sense. I would love to be able to disable the narration and maybe even the music, just to enjoy watching the pure images.
