Highly informative documentary-series.
10 September 2016 | by BRFyFasanSee all my reviews

Thanks to Netflix for making this magnificent TV-series available to a broader audience. Especially since this series deserves more recognition around the world. Yann Arthus-Bertrand is one the most important environmentalists and film-makers of our time.

Beautiful photography, very informative and good narration. Interesting to watch for a greater understanding of the complexity of humans effects on planet earth. I already knew much about several of the themes, but found it especially interesting to learn more about the impacts of the flower and clothing industry, as well as the possibilities in algae fuel and bio-gas. Each episode consists of two parts, each part lasting for almost an hour, but they are all worth watching in my opinion.

It's interesting to see how more recent documentaries as Cowspiracy and Food Inc. have become famous as more and more people are concerned about environmental issues, but as we learn here all the facts has already been around for many years.

I would also recommend checking out Bertrand's other documentaries to learn more and experience more beautiful photography.
