Yann Arthus-Bertrand on "Home"

Tuesday, February 01, 2011

Photographer and environmentalist Yann Arthus-Bertrand discusses his new film, "Home," which approaches climate change by going beyond the scientific reports, charts, and graphs to show how the earth is changing. Spanning 54 countries and 120 locations, all seen from the air, the film captures the Earth's most amazing landscapes, showcasing its beauty and vulnerability. "Home" is Arthus-Bertrand's feature film directorial debut, and it is playing at Village East Cinema—for free—February 4-10.

We're in deep trouble. It reminds me of one of Jesus' last words: 'I thirst'.

I like how he sneaked in "s hi t" in there at 12:05.

One thing we can do is to eat less meat. Apparently that causes lots of greenhouse gases.

We need ingenuity but we can support all people, and do better for the globe.

How does Mr. Arthus-Bertrand sees the celebration of his film by important political figures like Fidel Castro (like him or not) --who has been a prolific writer on the matter of climate change, sin like 1994; when a summit was held on Brasil, and where he made fun of the leaders that just went there to take a picture, and he stressed the matter with the sharpness that characterizes him -- ?

I saw the film at Columbia yesterday. It was stunning. How many hours of footage did you shoot and what was the low point for you as you shot scenes of the human impact on nature?

P.S. Thank you for the free distribution.
