HOME – A Documentary about us

June 9th, 2009 // 2 Comments // Posted by Matthias

Hey guys this is huge!

Pressured by many friend requests (yes i knew i shouldn’t do this), yesterday i  finally signed up to facebook and there i stumbled upon the fantastic Documentary “Home”  (thx S. for posting it) which was released on 5th June – the international day of environment.  A couple of days before I’ve read a article about this film, now its finally online at Youtube. The well known french photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand and director Luc Besson (Le grand bleu/The Fifth Element) made this possible and i think they did a great job.

Don’t misunderstand me when i say this film is like an orgasm for your eyes. But also in the same time a slap to the ears when u listen carefully. Amazing tracking shots and pans of landscapes on the one side and sadly facts about the strange way of evolution by the Homo-sapiens on the other side.

In the past it was and and in the future it will always be a question of  balance. One question of life – the balance of good and evil, the balance of power and depression between poor and rich. A question that can´t be answered by humans.
We need more films like this one. Media should go back to the roots, back to being based on democratic enlightenment and not on manipulation.  Again and again we must remind us how precious this world is! Everyone who is wealthy and able to do so!

This short teaser shows u some pictures from the movie. Watch it in full length (1h33min) and HD resolution on Youtube.

On Googlemaps u can get some more information about the spots witch are shown in the film.

Happy about your feedback
