Of Forests and Men (English)

United Nations

Yann Arthus-Bertrand was appointed by the United Nations to produce the official film for the International Year of Forests. Following the success of Home which was seen by 400 million people, the photographer began producing a short 7-minute film on forests made up of aerial images from Home and the Earth from Above television programmes. This film was shown during a plenary session of the Ninth Session of United Nations Forum on Forests (24 January -- 4 February 2011) in New York.
