  • The Pantanal, Brazil. In barely 40 years, the world's largest rainforest the Amazon has been reduced by 20%. The wetlands represent 6% of the surface of the planet and are indispensable environments for the regeneration of water. In the last century, humans drained half the world's marshes.

The movie “Home” was directed by the renowned photographer and best-selling author of “Earth From Above,” Yann Arthus-Bertrand. The film is composed exclusively of aerial shots of the Earth, and it highlights Man’s effects on our planet.

Narrated by Hollywood star Glenn Close, the film takes viewers on a globe-spanning journey showcasing the current state of the planet and some of the most varied and beautiful landscapes on Earth from the Great Barrier Reef to the Lakagigar volcanic system of Iceland, the Dades Valley of Morocco to the frozen lake Baikal of Russia. Check the gallery above.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand has sold more than 3 million copies of his book of photography β€œEarth From Above.” His latest Paris exhibition featured videos of 5,600 people photographed in 78 countries, and it attracted 150,000 visitors in just one month. The movie took 217 days of shooting in 54 countries, which added up to 488 hours of footage.

His $16 million dollars movie has been screened all over the world since 2009, including Bangladesh and the headquarters of the United Nations and has already been seen by 400 million people and now it is arriving to the U.S. So, if you are in New York, you will be able to watch it in the big screen at the Village East Cinema for free.

It’s really amazing to watch it on a big screen, so we, here at TheBlogIsMine.com highly recommend you to go if you can. If you are not lucky to be in NYC β€” or is not showing in a screening near you β€” you can watch it right here. [HomeTheMovie.org via NY Times and Gizmodo]
