The French Embassy will screen the French environmental film "Home" as part of its scientific film festival on Friday, Science attachÃ© Prof. Eric Seboun told The Jerusalem Post this week. The film by French filmmaker Yann Arthus-Bertrand was filmed aerially in 54 countries including Israel. This is the first screening of the movie with Hebrew subtitles.
"It's about the planet and how human action is changing it. It shows how we should be careful about saving water, not producing too much carbon dioxide. The film raises awareness to global warming. The emphasis is on human actions - deforestation, energy use through transportation, air conditioning," Seboun told the Post.
It is the biggest environmental movie in French history, according to Seboun.
The noon screening at the Tel Aviv Cinemateque will be attended by new French Ambassador to Israel Christophe bigot and Israeli government representatives. The festival is co-sponsored by the Museums of Science of Haifa and Jerusalem and will run until mid-December.
