HOME : A MOVIE HAPPENING
DHL is pleased to invite you to a special screening of Home on Saturday, 21 November 2009, 9.00 am at Lido 3, Shaw Centre. Together with our partner, the Singapore Environmental Council (SEC), we hope to spread the word about this remarkable movie, as well as its important environmental message, to a wider audience.
With its stunning visuals and eye-opening narration by Glenn Close, Home, a film by famed photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, delivers the environmental message about the need to conserve our perishing planet, and restore its natural beauty with unmistakable clarity.
DHL is the world’s leading logistics company with 500,000 employees in almost every major community on planet earth. As such the company recognizes its special responsibility to the communities it operates in and to the minimization of its impact on the environment.
Your participation is important in raising awareness and inspiring individual efforts towards environmental conservations. Please contact the Singapore Environmental Council at 6337 6062 or firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your attendance or for more information.
The movie HOME directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and co-produced by Elzévir Films and EuropaCorp (Luc Besson’s company) and supported by PPR
Yann Arthus-Bertrand became famous through the “Earth from above,” a photographic portrait of aerial shots of our planet. Three million copies of his book have been sold and his free, open-air exhibitions have been seen by more than one hundred million people.
HOME carries on this tradition. This feature will be made up of aerial images which have been filmed in more than fifty countries around the world. A voice-off will offer constructive hindsight into the major environmental and social challenges facing our world.
The worldwide release of the movie will be organized by EuropaCorp on June 5th, 2009 – World Environment Day – in cinemas, on television, on DVD and on the Internet around the world. The aim of this simultaneous worldwide broadcasting is to enable as many people as possible to watch the movie together.
The objective of HOME is not to make a profit. Its only benefit will be to contribute towards increasing awareness of our responsibility towards the planet. Profits will be donated to Goodplanet.org.
HOME IS CARBON OFFSET
Greenhouse gas emissions which are caused by air-travel and hours of photography by helicopter will be offset by supporting clean development projects (biogas production project in the Hassan district in India, cf. appendix)
