When i first saw “An inconvenient truth” by Al Gore, i thought, “this is a very good film everyone should watch it!”.
Now i just saw an amazing film called “Home” by Yann Arthus Bertrand the amazing photographer.
He believes the internet is a great tool to change people’s minds, so he did the opposite of what most people in the cinema industry would have done, he released his film online for free, in several languages.
I saw it on youtube, but i believe its better going to the cinema, and watching it with better quality because images are really beautiful and its very well composed visually.
Youtube is still a great choice for those who don’t have a cinema that show the film near their homes or don’t want to pay, but you’ll watch it with less quality (there is a better quality version if you click on the HD icon on youtube).
Now for the scary part a lot of facts are told in the film, and yes its scary and most facts are known, most people know the planet is not going well and that we are destroying everything, its all over the news everyday. But most people don’t know how bad it is, so i hope this helps somehow change people’s mind.
What can you do after watching the film? You can go to their official forum to discuss your ideas with other people on this film, or you can start sending letters to people in your goverment to start caring about the 2009 copenhagen summit (it will replace the kyoto protocol, so it is very important). There is lots of things we can all do even if they are small its better than nothing check oxfam’s website for more information on what you can do ;)
Enjoy the film :)
