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.

CO2 emissions engendered by making the film are calculated and offset by sums of money that
are used to provide clean energy to those who don't have any. For the last ten years, all the work
of Yann Arthus-Bertrand has been carbon offset.

(Europacorp), Denis Carot (Elzevir Films) and supported by François-Henri Pinault of PPR
Group, the branding portfolio that handles Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent and several other luxury
brands. In the United States, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment represents the film.
After completing the amazing imagery of "HOME," Yann Arthus-Bertrand began his next
journey around the world by screening the film for free wherever there was an audience curious
to experience it. The journey began on World Environment Day, June 5, 2009, when the film
was released worldwide across all media platforms -- theater, television, DVD and Internet. Free
screenings took place across 5 continents. Since then, more than 400 million people have
Yann Arthus-Bertrand's next journey brings him back to New York City, a city he loves, where

February 4-10, 2011, at the Village East Cinemas in New York.
