- I have always loved our planet and tried to show the audience the most amazing aspects through my films, including "The Big Blue" and "Atlantis". It was therefore quite natural for me to do this magnificent film project together with Yann, says Luc Besson.
Our Earth filmed only from above
Yann Arthus-Betrand has made himself famous by his very special way to shoot from above, mainly by the book "Earth From Above".
- This film has been in my head for 15 years. I want to share my experiences for anything I've seen while I was flying over the earth's surface. I want the movie to be magnificent and at the same time intelligent, but most of all constructive. For example, it is important that we not only focus on the 50% of rainforest devastated away, but see the 50% of the rain forest is left and how to take advantage of the best. Today there are over 6 billion intelligent people on earth who can make a difference. Throughout the film, I would engage the audience and that we all do something by our own ability, says Yann Arthus-Bertrand.
