On March 20, the Earth Day, Ufa planetarium will show a documentary "Home" free of charge. The holiday traditionally begins with the sound of the Bell of Peace.

The film "Home" is a result of joint efforts by two masters of modern art — the world famous wildlife photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand and the cult film director Luc Besson. They have been shooting the film for half a year in more than 60 countries. It is one of the most expensive documentaries in the history of cinematography. It is meant not only to show the beauty of our planet, but also to make people think about what to expect the Earth and humanity in the near future.

It is important that the film is distributed for free. Owners of rights to "Home" and its distribution have agreed not to use the film for commercial purposes.

“The profits that we expect to gain from the film are not calculated in dollars or euros, but in number of people who will watch the film and who will think it over”, Yann Arthus-Bertrand said.
