Isabella Rossellini is hoping that her Italian narration for Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s documentary Home will encourage people to look after the planet.
The French filmmaker shot the film from the sky, giving a unique view of the Earth and showing the impact humans are having on it.
“I knew of his work for a long time so I said yes without hesitation, so I could get to know him,” said Rossellini at the Santa Barbara Film Festival. "He’s somebody that I’ve admired for 20 years.
“I think that the power of this film is that he has found a very simple solution by photographing the earth from above, from the aerial view to give you the feeling that you are objective and just looking down at something and you have an overall view.
“Whether you decide how much you want to be involved in the environmental movement or not; it does make you fall in love with the earth. I think that’s the power of the film. I think environmentalists will love the film but I think the people that are not particularly involved with the environment will have that feeling that our earth is a wonderful planet.”
