Grab your diary – I have a treat for you!
“Home” – the film
At the Waiheke THEATRE at Artworks, Oneroa
Friday and Saturday (June 26th, 27th), 7:30pm
“Home” offers the most stunning cinematography I have ever seen. (see reviews below)
Come on a journey through 4 billion years of your evolution, via a visual feast of magnificent proportions.
After the 90 minute film the Theatre’s cafe will be open for refreshments if you want to stay a while.
“With the goal to share a new perspective on the need for sustainability, Yann Arthus-Bertrand takes us on an original journey around the planet. Contemplating its beauty through the eyes of the filmmaker, we learn about the treasures Earth offers and marks we leave behind.
The film is a travel notebook, showing landscapes captured from above. Looking down from the sky, we follow water currents, roads and biodiverse communities across boarders and cultures to embrace a complex situation in one, emotion-filled glance. Home invites us to stop for a moment, take a hard look, and consider our impact.
Conceived through a meeting of minds of three men, Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Luc Besson and François-Henri Pinault, Home’s objective is to inspire global action by raising awareness of our shared responsibility for the planet and all of its inhabitants.”
Yann Arthus-Bertrand offers these words:
“We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, to avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth’s climate. The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being. For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film. HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.” – Yann Arthus-Bertrand, GoodPlanet President
I hope you will join me at the Theatre (not Cinema) on Friday June 26th or Saturday June 27th (7:30pm).
You will be able to offer Koha at the door, to cover costs of hiring the venue, projection and sound equipment, printing and promotional work to get the word out about this event.
