Watch Luc Besson’s Environmental Documentary Home on YouTube for Free


Hey remember when Disney released their nature documentary Earth in theatres back in April in order to cash in on — uh, I mean, raise awareness of — Earth Day? Well guess what, today is World Environment Day, and in honour of this, producer Luc Besson has released the new documentary Home online entirely for free. Sounds a little more generous than Disney, although to be fair, I don’t see him planting any trees either!

The movie is directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, an acclaimed aerial photographer, who provides some pretty insane looking footage of the Earth from above, showing landscapes from 54 different countries. Glenn Close does the English narration which covers various climate change statistics. While we’ve probably heard some of it before in An Inconvenient Truth, I think this looks a little more visually interesting than Al Gore’s slideshow. Home will be online until June 14th. I’ve embedded the trailer below, but you’ll have to follow the link to watch the full movie in HD on YouTube.
