Wait A Minute, Documentaries Are Cool?!?!

I wanted to get a post out this week, but because of finals and senior year nonsense, I have been unable to post anything awesome. However, I did remember this sweet documentary I watched in a consumer behavior class in Paris. Check it out, if you don't like what its talks about, it's got some amazing shots. Enjoy the whole movie on YouTube here:

Movie: Home
Summary: Internationally renowned photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand makes his feature directorial debut with this environmentally conscious documentary produced by Luc Besson, and narrated by Glenn Close. Shot in 54 countries and 120 locations over 217 days, Home presents the many wonders of planet Earth from an entirely aerial perspective. As such, we are afforded the unique opportunity to witness our changing environment from an entirely new vantage point. In our 200,000 years on Earth, humanity has hopelessly upset Mother Nature's delicate balance. Some experts claim that we have less than ten years to change our patterns of consumption and reverse the trend before the damage is irreversible. Produced to inspire action and encourage thoughtful debate, Home poses the prospect that unless we act quickly, we risk losing the only home we may ever have.

  1. The movie appeals to anyone, man or woman, old or young. This movie also introduces a new viewing audience to the meaning of Life in earth, and that we are living in exceptional times. HOME is a video that should been viewed by all. Hope this movie opens the eyes of every individual living on our earth, people got to wake up and start adapting preemptively or risk suffering greatly when forcibly adapting later.
