Free screening of ‘Home’ at Sebastiani
THROUGH AERIAL IMAGES, Yann Arthus-Bertrand demonstrates how natural resources are being taxed across the globe.
Due to the overwhelming response to the showing of the movie “Home” at the Sebastiani Theatre earlier this month, the film will be shown a second time on Monday, Nov. 28, at 6:30 p.m.
“Home” is the first-ever 100 percent aerial footage film, a trademark of Yann Arthus-Bertrand, world-renown for his photography and concern for ecological sustainability.
The film tells the story of the planet’s evolution in sweeping unique images shot in more than 50 countries around the world that more than 400,000 people world-wide have been able to view.
Set against a stirring, sometimes haunting, original sound track and narrated by award-winning actress Glenn Close, the full-length feature documentary is shown publically at no charge in accord with Arthus-Bertrand’s idea that the film should be free.
To help support the Sebastiani Theatre, donations will be encouraged.
The purpose of the film is to arouse the world’s attention to the incredible challenges humanity is facing as the ever-increasing demand of natural resources far out paces supplies. A post-film discussion will focus on developing local solutions and building community resilience.
At its earlier debut with the theater completely full and an estimated 100-plus turned away at the door, Roger Rhoten, director of Sebastiani Theatre, felt compelled to run a repeat of the film, which originally was intended to be shown only once in Sonoma.
The film is again sponsored by the Sonoma Ecology Center and Transition Sonoma Valley, whose mission is to build a responsive network of local citizens, groups and businesses to create a resilient, self-reliant community in response to the challenges of climate change, peak oil and economic instability.
