Home, the movie which seeks to draw attention to action we need to take in order to reverse the environmental impact upon our planet, is set to be released on Youtube on Earth Day, June 5th, 09. Directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and co-produced with PPR and Luc Besson, the film focuses on the positive aspects of our planet, its diversity and beauty in a bid to highlight important social and climate change issues.
