I can’t remember the last time a film with epic visuals like HOME was released to the masses online — for free. YouTube, in a post on the company blog, said the event “marks the first time a global audience can watch a movie online, in movie theaters, on TV stations, and on outdoor screens around the world at the exact same time.”
And what a treat it is. Besides the Planet Earth series, you would be hard pressed to find another visual feast like this one. More than eye candy, however, HOME will get you thinking about our relationship to the planet in ways few documentaries can. As the director Yann Arthus-Bertrand said, “From the sky, there’s less need for explanations.”
The film will be available online until June 14th. I’d embed it below, but for the full experience, I recommend clicking thru to Youtube here and hitting the HD button on the bottom-right. Trust me — you won’t be disappointed.
