Last night, I watch the most beautiful yet disturbing documentary simply called “Home“. It is about our home, The Earth, and what mankind has managed to do to it in a very short space of time since we have begun to use fossil fuels. By the end of the movie I had a tear in my eye. The entire movie is shot with aerial photography and the cinematography is second to none.

The script is exceptionally well written and powerful. It was directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and movie is narrated by Glenn Close.

Here is the trailer of the movie from youtube.

The website says it will be available until the 15th July, so maybe we missed the full movie. I am hoping they will bring it back. However, because I am a nice bloke and have a special copy, I am willing to send one lucky person a special off site backup of this fantastic movie. Just leave a comment and let me know why you think you should receive a copy, and I will select a winner on Thursday 23 July. The judges decision will be final. I hope the film makers don’t mind. If they do, they should have left the movie up on youtube longer!

Have fun!

    Wow – the cinematography and music in this would keep the 4yo, 2.5yo & 1yo captivated for the entire film.
    Even better, it comes with a message.
    I’ve got to have a copy as it’s benefits far outweigh that of BooBah!

    Keep trying. As I mentioned in my last post, I now have 2 copies to give away, postage paid to anywhere in the world.

    Give it your best shot!

    I too had a really cool comment thought up, hoping to use the same benefits to family, etcetera….stuff. Heather has been so articulate that I cant even compete. Maybe the lucky winner could start a chain and share the film so that lots of people can enjoy. I have had no luck finding it either, so if there is anyone who knows where or how to find it, please share!

    Thanks, Sarah

    Gavin wouldn’t we all love a copy, It looks a beautiful way to send a message. The music is wonderful, I wonder if they recorded it. I can just imagine playing it while working outside in the garden. If I am not lucky enough to be gifted the copy from you, any suggestions of where I could find it on the web?

    Hi Gavin,

    I had a nice little comment all worked out and then I read Heather’s. For the sake of peace and harmony in her home I think she deserves it more than a mltivationally challenged, inconsistent gardner.

    And she said such nice things about you as well.
