Fascinating beauty of nature and portraits of extraordinary people who are trying to save this beauty from destruction. "We can only protect what we know well," - says the French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, therefore, fifteen years carries out its grand project - documenting the state of the Earth turn of the century using aerial photographs. Implemented with his ideas, the popular TV series "Earth seen from the sky" has been already the fourth series episodes. Earth as seen from the sky "is a remarkable document of great power of expression. The mesmerizing beauty of the image and mood music, full of lyricism and emotional picture of the place, the rescue should be a priority of all mankind. This is a call to reflection and action, signal the alarm and the beginning of the revival.
Thanks to Netflix for making this magnificent TV-series available to a broader audience. Especially since this series deserves more recognition around the world. Yann Arthus-Bertrand is one the most important environmentalists and film-makers of our time.
Beautiful photography, very informative and good narration. Interesting to watch for a greater understanding of the complexity of humans effects on planet earth. I already knew much about several of the themes, but found it especially interesting to learn more about the impacts of the flower and clothing industry, as well as the possibilities in algae fuel and bio-gas. Each episode consists of two parts, each part lasting for almost an hour, but they are all worth watching in my opinion.
It's interesting to see how more recent documentaries as Cowspiracy and Food Inc. have become famous as more and more people are concerned about environmental issues, but as we learn here all the facts has already been around for many years.
I would also recommend checking out Bertrand's other documentaries to learn more and experience more beautiful photography.
