Screening of TERRA – THE MOVIE a film by Yann Arthus-Bertrand
Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22. Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day events are now held in more than 193 countries globally.
‘Geoscience for All’ is a movement geared towards increasing awareness, understanding, appreciation and application of Earth Sciences and its importance in an individual’s day to day life and the communities at large. Under this initiative, we have organized several events over the last five months. We now bring to you the movie – TERRA , a film made by none other than Yann Arthus-Bertrand, the world-renowned photographer.
A VISUALLY STUNNING DOCUMENTARY THAT EXPLORED THE RICH DIVERSITY OF LIFE. A 90 minute documentary by Yann Arthus-Bertrand & Michael Pitiot, produced by Hope Productions. A tribute to the human race, clearly showing that we are still capable of changing our future, just by looking differently at life.
At its core, Terra looks at the natural history of mankind and our existence on Earth. It looks back on the unique journey of a species which, among millions of others, has evolved and emerged from the many phases of our planet’s growth.
As the narration continues– subjectively embodying humanity itself – it will gradually divert from this natural history and begin to show how our species regards and represents the world. How did man become aware of the world around him, and how has this vision evolved over thousands of years to the current state of unconsciousness?
How do we now wish to interact with other species that live around us? The power of Terra resides in this very question. This documentary will show how our own image and representation of nature has always been decisive in human history, and how it can still change the course of events to come.
