HOME, directed by internationally recognized photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, takes us on a fascinating aerial journey all around the planet. Narrated by Glenn Close, the documentary was filmed across fifty countries and shot entirely from the sky in high definition, offering a powerful commentary on the major environmental and social issues challenging our world today. HOME invites us to stop for a moment in order to look at our planet and realize how we treat its treasures and beauty.

Presented as part of World Environmental Day, HOME premiered simultaneously throughout the world on June 5, creating a global event. The film is the result of a collaboration between Yann Arthus-Bertrand, the producer and director Luc Besson and Francois-Henri Pinault, Chief Executive of the French luxury group PPR – the majority shareholder of PUMA and the world exclusive partner of HOME.
