Yann Arthus-Bertrand Retrospective

Yann Arthus-Bertrand Retrospective

Yann Arthus-Bertrand has always been passionate about the animal kingdom and natural spaces. He conveys this passion via his films, while simultaneously opening the viewers’ eyes to problematic issues. The Franco-Chinese Month of the Environment is a chance for him to present his latest film, Human, as well as his main feature-length works aimed at helping the environmental cause

The Chinese public are invited to travel to all four corners of the world. In Human, the director gives us a committed work that both embraces the human condition and invites us to consider the meaning of our own existence. The central issues in Home are deforestation, melting ice, and the exhaustion of natural resources. The theme of water is also highly present: Mediterranean and Planet Ocean plunge us into the marine universe, while A Thirsty World warns us against the scarcity of this vital resource. Finally, Terra, a essay in the literary sense of the term, is a true discovery of the human species and its relation to the living world.

 

Yann Arthus-Bertrand was born in 1946, and has always nurtured a passion for animals and the natural world. At a very early age, he began to use a camera to record his observations and accompany his writings.

On the occasion of the first Earth Summit in Rio in 1992, Yann decided to embark upon a major photographic project about the state of the world and its inhabitants: Earth From Above. This book enjoyed international success, selling more than three million copies. His open-air photographic exhibition was shown in around 100 countries and seen by some 200 million people.

Yann continued his commitment to the environmental cause with the creation of the GoodPlanet Foundation. Since 2005, this non-profit organization has been investing in educating people about the environment and the fight against climate change.

This commitment saw him appointed United Nations Environment Program Goodwill Ambassador in 2009. That same year, he made his first feature-length film, HOME, about the state of the planet. This movie was seen by almost 600 million spectators around the world.
