Film: "Home"

  • Date: Wednesday, February 9, 2011
  • Time: 8:00 pm
  • Location: Valders Hall of Science—Room 206

Directed by photographer and environmentalist Yann Arthus-Bertrand and narrated by
Glenn Close, “HOME” takes you on a visually stunning, spectacular voyage around the
world. It is a unique film that approaches the current debate about climate change from
a whole new angle, giving the viewer the opportunity to see how our earth is changing.
Going well beyond the scientific reports, charts and graphs, this film is an inspiration that
speaks to our hearts and touches our souls.

Humans have upset the balance of planet Earth. We must act now. It's too late to be a
pessimist. The price is too high. Humanity has barely ten years to reverse the trend and
change its patterns of consumption.

Spanning 54 countries and 120 locations, all seen from the air, the film captures the
Earth's most amazing landscapes, showcasing its incomparable beauty and
acknowledging its vulnerability. “HOME” is an emotional reminder of what is at stake:
the Earth, in all its beauty, and the people who live on it. With this film, Arthus-Bertrand
hopes to provide a stepping-stone to further the call to action to take care of our HOME
and encourage viewers to become good “eco-citizens.”
