Home, sweet home

In just a few decades, man has disrupted the balance of thousands of years of the Earth’s evolution of and has jeopardized his future. The risk is enormous and Humanity must become aware of the excessive exploitation of the planet’s wealth and change their consumption habits.

This is the argument that led to the French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand to embark on three years of work to shoot the documentary ‘Home’. Made of aerial images taken in more than 50 countries, the author’s intention was ‘to place the first brick of the building that we must rebuild all together’, in his own words. The film is free and was released simultaneously in theaters and on the Internet in June 2009.

Currently he is working on a sequel, ‘Home, story of a journey’, which insists on the wounds of the world and explains the reasons that led him to get back on the same subject.

Desde su perspectiva profesional de realizadora de documentales sobre la vida silvestre, se pregunta cómo transformar el establecimiento agrícola de sus padres, localizado en el sur de Inglaterra, en una granja de bajo consumo energético, más adecuada para un futuro cercano en el que los combustibles fósiles serán cada vez más escasos. Rebecca asume así el desafío de formar parte de la próxima generación de agricultores, una generación que deberá enfrentar un escenario muy diferente al actual para poder subsistir y continuar produciendo. Los altos precios del combustible y el evidente declive energético son una llamada de atención que le hace tomar conciencia de que toda la producción de alimentos en el mundo se encuentra ante una encrucijada sin precedentes, por ser completamente dependiente de los combustibles fósiles. La realizadora-agricultora registra con su cámara las diferentes visiones de reconocidos investigadores, permacultores y pioneros, que coinciden en señalar a la propia Naturaleza como la que brinda las claves para la agricultura del futuro.A true story told in the first person by the protagonist, Rebecca Hosking, who thinks to return to his native Devon to take on the old family farm. From his professional perspective documentary filmmaker on wildlife, wonders how to transform the agricultural settlement of his parents, located in the south of England, on a farm of low energy level for a near future in which fuel fossil will become increasingly scarce. Rebecca takes the challenge and be part of the next generation of farmers, a generation that will face a very different scenario from today to survive and continue to produce. The high prices of fuel and the evident energetic decline are a warning that makes him aware that all food production in the world is at a crossroads unprecedented, being completely dependent on fossil fuels. The director-farmer with his camera recorded the different views of renowned researchers, permacultures and pioneers, who agree in pointing to Nature itself as providing the keys to future agriculture."

Hawking piensa que la Humanidad 'no debería poner todos los huevos en la misma cesta o en el mismo planeta' y apoya sin vacilación la investigación seria de la vida fuera del nuestro, mientras que Sagan sostenía que los humanos terminarán sin duda por conquistar otros lugares para vivir que ahora no podemos ni siquiera imaginar, aunque también que esos humanos serán muy diferentes a nosotros.

Hawking thinks humanity 'should not put all your eggs in one basket, or on the same planet' and without hesitation supports serious research of life outside of our own, while Sagan argued that humans will eventually —doubtless— conquer elsewhere to live that we can not even imagine now, but also that those humans are very different from us.
