HOME official website:
We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth's climate.
The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.
For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film.
HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.

Last month, an 11-year-old had much to say about the perils of the American food system. Speaking at a TED conference for young people called TEDx in Asheville, North Carolina, Birke Baehr discussed food irradiation, GMOs, CAFOs, farm run-off, the problem with marketing food to kids and more, all in five minutes. On the subject of paying more for better quality food, Baehr said, “With all the things I’m learning about the food system, it seems to me that we can either pay the farmer or pay the hospital.”
He also talked about his future aspirations. “Awhile back I wanted to be an NFL football player. Now, I’ve decided I’d rather be an organic farmer instead,” he said to the cheering audience. “That way I can have a greater impact on the world.”

CRUDE is an award-winning documentary film that chronicles the epic battle
to hold oil giant Chevron (formerly Texaco) accountable for its systematic
contamination of the Ecuadorian Amazon – an environmental tragedy experts
call "the Rainforest Chernobyl."
Centering on a $27 billion lawsuit filed by the indigenous people and
campesinos who continue to suffer a severe public health crisis caused by
Chevron's contamination, CRUDE is a high-stakes David vs. Goliath legal
drama with 30,000 Amazon rainforest dwellers facing down the 5th largest
corporation on the planet.
With key support from Amazon Watch and our Clean Up Ecuador campaign, people
are coming together to promote (and see) this incredible film, and then
provide ways for viewers to support the struggle highlighted so powerfully
by the film.
A victory for the Ecuadorian plaintiffs in the lawsuit will send shock waves
through corporate boardrooms around the world, invigorating communities
fighting against injustice by oil companies. The success of our campaign can
change how the oil industry operates by sending a clear signal that they
will be held financially liable for their abuses.
CRUDE is an exciting and powerful new film. It's also a powerful new tool in
the struggle for justice in Ecuador. You can help us seize this critical
