About the movie

The United Nations mandated Yann Arthus-Bertrand and the GoodPlanet foundation to produce the official film for the launch of the International Year of Forests, 2011. Following the success of his film Home , seen by 600 million people, the photographer created a 7-minute short film on forests filled with aerial images from Home and the Earth from Above television series.

This film will be shown during the plenary session of the Ninth Session of United Nations Forum on Forests (24 January - 4 February 2011) in New York. It will be available to the public, at no charge, starting February 2 for worldwide distribution.

If you are an NGO or a school and that you wish to organize a free screening of the film Forests and People, please contact the GoodPlanet Foundation : jacqueline@goodplanet.org
