Incredible, Visually Astonishing, Critical to Watch...
As my friend, a family member, a fan of my artwork and/or blog, but mostly as a fellow human being I ask that you take the time to watch this free online full feature film by French director, Yann Arthus-Bertrand.
I can't say I've ever been affected by a film this way...especially a documentary.

From the film's website:
A hymn for the planet
HOME is an ode to the planet's beauty and its delicate harmony. Through the landscapes of 54 countries captured from above, Yann Arthus-Bertrand takes us on an unique journey all around the planet, to contemplate it and to understand it. But HOME is more than a documentary with a message, it is a magnificent movie in its own right. Every breathtaking shot shows the Earth - our Earth - as we have never seen it before. Every image shows the Earth's treasures we are destroying and all the wonders we can still preserve. "From the sky, there's less need for explanations". Our vision becomes more immediate, intuitive and emotional. HOME has an impact on anyone who sees it. It awakens in us the awareness that is needed to change the way we see the world. (HOME embraces the major ecological issues that confront us and shows how everything on our planet is interconnected.)
This quote is no hyperbole. This film is one of the most fantastic visual feasts I've seen and the quality, even on YouTube was excellent.
Take the time, watch the film, be changed as I was by seeing it.
