Isabella Rossellini Narrates New Environmental Documentary "Home"
Isabella Rossellini has led a few different lives; author, Lancôme model, philanthropist, actress, green porn star (seriously). And now she’s narrating the Italian version of a documentary film called Home, which focuses on the perils of climate change.
The movie, which is helmed by French director Yann Arthus-Bertrand— who is also something of an environmental celeb in France— is essentially two hours of breathtaking aerial shots, and spans 54 countries, all in an effort to prompt people to do more for the environment.
Speaking at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, Rossellini said, “I think that the power of this film is that he has found a very simple solution by photographing the earth from above, from the aerial view to give you the feeling that you are objective and just looking down at something and you have an overall view.”
The 58-year-old then added, “Whether you decide how much you want to be involved in the environmental movement or not; it does make you fall in love with the earth. I think that’s the power of the film. I think environmentalists will love the film but I think the people that are not particularly involved with the environment will have that feeling that our earth is a wonderful planet.”
The documentary sounds stunning, and if you live in New York then you’re in luck! The film will be shown for free from now until Feb. 10th at the Village East Cinemas in Manhattan, check it out!
*CORRECTION: It was originally reported that Isabella Rossellini was narrating this film, when in fact Glenn Close is narrating the English version, while Rossellini narrates the Italian version*
