French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand just released a free film, Home – made entirely from aerial shots, featuring footage from every continent. Starting in 1994, Arthus-Bertrand has worked on a picture inventory of the world’s most amazing landscapes for the UN’s world heritage body, Unesco. The result of the project was a book, which sold over three million copies and was translated into 24 languages.

I’ve only seen a few stills from the film so far, but will be watching it in it’s entirety tonight. No doubt it will be sobering and beautiful at the same time as it features breathtaking images of Earth and the marks that humans leave behind. The main message I gather will be – every one action we take has a consequence on this planet and, shit… looks like we’re screwing things up! … to be eloquent. Ahem.

Watch it on youtube

Let me know how you feel after watching it and how you deal with eco-anxiety.
