Yann Arthus-Bertrand proudly presents his environmental documentary at the 1st San Francisco Green Film Festival HOME, the 1st full-length feature documentary film by Yann Arthus-Bertrand shown for free in over 130 countries and seen by more than 400 million viewers, will screen Saturday, March 5th 2011 at 8.00 pm at Landmark Theatres Embarcadero Center Cinema. Yann Arthus-Bertrand will be there in person to present both "HOME" and the teaser of his acclaimed video project "6 billion Others – Climate Voices". HOME 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. Spanning 54 countries and 120 locations, all seen from the air, the film captures the Earth’s mostamazing 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 “ecocitizens.” “HOME” is a non-profit film project, produced by film director and producer Luc Besson (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. Home was launched in New York City last month. In the United States, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment represents the film. Visit: www.homethemovie.org for trailers and pictures. 6 billion Others – Climate Voices We are delighted to have the opportunity to present "HOME" and "6 billion Others - Climate Voices" together because of the comparable themes they raise. Home gives us a global view of the Earth while 6 billion Others delivers a close-up portrait illustrating which elements individuals are facing. 6 billion Others – “CLIMATE VOICES” represents 600 new interviews conducted in 17 countries. The testimonies were collected throughout continents where people have been directly affected by climate change. For these interviews, a list of specific questions on climate, validated by the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC) and adapted to the respondent"s specific conditions, were added to the original «6 billion Others» questionnaire. This project is corroborated by scientific evidence, which is intended to emphasize the need for global awareness. www.6billionothers.org
