In 2015, to mark the launch of the UN’s new Global Goals for Sustainable Development, 59 Productions produced a short film with Richard Curtis in association with the Global Poverty Project, the United Nations and NASA.
The film explored the idea that the best way for us to ensure the future safety of the planet is to consider the whole Earth as our collective home. Drawing on interviews with past and current astronauts, the film uses material from NASA’s extensive archive to show the Earth as viewed from space over the course of the last fifty years. Form this unique viewpoint, the film explores what global unity might look like, and what it might hope to achieve.
Broadcast world wide as part of the coverage of the Global Citizen festival in Central Park, Home was also screened to world leaders in the United Nations General Assembly.
