‘Energy’ Series documentary film: ‘Home’ to show at the St. Mane Theatre

LANESBORO, Minn. – ‘HOME’, a documentary film, will show at the St. Mane Theatre on Friday, Sept. 20 at 7:30 p.m. Tying into the ‘Energy’ theme this season, the film is part of the Third Friday Film Series, an educational series sponsored by the Lanesboro Arts Center in partnership with volunteers.

One such volunteer is Kitty Baker, who tirelessly researches and previews films. “The film is an artful cross between sweeping cinematography and environmental consciousness-raising,” says Kitty. “This stunning documentary is shot almost exclusively from aerial views, capturing the awesome patterning of agriculture, industry and nature. Filmed above 54 countries around the planet, it visually documents humankind’s impact on the place we all call Home.

The film ends with insights on where we go from here.” The 2009 documentary was produced and directed by Luc Besson, with aerial photography by Yann Arthus-Bertrand; the film runs 120 minutes. The name ‘HOME’ comes from the fact that the word ‘home’ has the same meaning in all cultures, all languages: a place that people of all ages can identify and love...Earth is the only ‘home’ we have, and the film inspires us to care for it that way.

Free-will donations help to cover costs of film licensing for the Third Friday Film Series, which runs May-October, with films held at the St. Mane Theatre at 206 Parkway Ave. N in Lanesboro, Minn. The final film of the 2013 series will be shown on Friday, Oct. 18 (title TBA). Lanesboro Arts Center serves the community as a regional catalyst for artistic excellence and educational development in providing diverse art experiences for people of all ages. 507-467-2446 / www.lanesboroarts.org.
