"Home", by the French film maker Yann Arthus-Bertrand is both beautiful and horrific at the same time. Be prepared for a big emotional impact. It is filmed almost entirely from the air all the way across the globe and gives a panoramic, well informed picture of the fossil fuel and energy crisis, the water and the climate crisis - and the vast and growing inequalities on a global scale.
A theme expressed throughout the documentary is that of linkage—how all organisms and the Earth are linked in a "delicate but crucial" natural balance with each other, and how no organism can be self-sufficient.It's basically all there for everyone to see visually - including, thanks goodness, a small bit at the end giving a beacon of hope.
The best part - you can watch all 93 minutes here.
