HOME: A breathtaking nature documentary by Yann Arthus-Bertrand

Have you ever thought about how long the world will still retain? For me the world seemed always steady as stone in the sea somehow unshakeable, but when I watched this incredible documentary HOME in 2009, which enlightened me about the vulnerability and real condition of our planet, I started to realize that we have to act soon.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand

HOME is a free nature documentary directed by the internationally recognized French photographer, journalist and environmentalist Yann Arthus-Bertrand. He is known as one of the most famous aerial photographer on our planet.

Making of

The nature documentary HOME is an ode to our precious planet and was shot entirely from the air with a high resolution digital camera. Yann Arthus-Bertrand went with his team in more than 50 countries all over the world.  They flew from tropical rainforest to the arctic seas to major cities such as Dubai, Tokyo and Lagos to capture wonderful pictures and scenes which has no one seen before like this.

The Story

With his incredible documentary Yann Arthus-Bertrand shows us on one side the beauty and fascination of our planet and on the other side he tries to warn us with dramatic pictures which show ecological and social problems such as overpopulation, soil erosion, depletion of natural resources and water scarcity. The nature documentary HOME makes critically clear that only man kind is responsible for the loss of our planet. This all seems really frustrating but at the end of the film a glimmer of hope is given to the audience by showing first projects to protect the nature and biodiversity.

In my opinion is HOME a great film which shows us with incredible and grandiose images the unique flora and fauna of our world as well as the threat to the ecological balance caused by humans. Once you have seen this film you will understand how urgent it is to protect and share responsibility for our planet.

“In less than 200 years we have disturbed the balance of the Earth
 that has been created in over four billion years.”

    Everyone needs to watch this remarkable documentary to understand the critical importance of this moment in human history. Along with the amazing aerial photography and the moving and informative commentary, I was also struck by the hauntingly beautiful music that accompanies this video. It was also commendable that its sobering warning concluded with a message of hope, detailing some positive (if few) examples of nations or institutions that have taken action to reverse this rape of the earth, and have tried to restore a harmonious relationship with the planet that is our home.
