If you don't have 93 spare minutes to watch this film, make the time

I'm coming a bit late to this party but I just learned of an extraordinary film Home by Yann Arthus-Bertrand (h/t to Daniel Bailey). Yann Arthus-Bertrand is famous for his aerial photography and this film features a dazzling series of aerial shots of the Earth. Each shot is a piece of art. Stringing it together is a compelling story narrated by Glenn Close. It speaks of the Earth's beauty and the balance of nature's ecosystems. It documents how humans have disrupted the balance and our unsustainable trajectory. But like any good climate message, it ends with hopeful and positive actions already occuring.

The film is a non-profit venture - you can watch the entire movie for free on YouTube (it looks and sounds fantastic on an iPad with headphones). It's a must-watch movie, one of the most significant and powerful environmental films I've seen. Watch it and then tell everyone you know to see it.

Here are a few screenshots that blew me away on first viewing (I literally could post dozens of such screenshots):
