Human Vol. 1
What is it that makes us human? Is it that we love, that we fight? That we laugh? Cry? Our curiosity? The quest for discovery?
Driven by these questions, filmmaker and artist Yann Arthus-Bertrand spent three years collecting real-life stories from 2,000 women and men in 60 countries. Working with a dedicated team of translators, journalists and cameramen, Yann captures deeply personal and emotional accounts of topics that unite us all; struggles with poverty, war, homophobia, and the future of our planet mixed with moments of love and happiness.
Vol. 1 deals with the themes of love, women, work and poverty.
Vol. 2 deals with the themes of war, forgiving, homosexuality, family and life after death.
Vol. 3 deals with the themes of happiness, education, disability, immigration, corruption and the meaning of life.
Like every story, this one has a beginning. One day, in Mali, Yann Arthus-Bertrand was the victim of a helicopter breakdown. While waiting for the pilot, he spent the entire day in with a farmer who spoke to him, with great dignity and without complaint, of his daily life, his hopes, his fears and of his sole ambition: to feed his children. Yann remains deeply marked by this encounter, this man to whom he felt so close.
HUMAN aims to be a sensitive and loving portrait of who we are, as a community, a family but most importantly as individuals.
HUMAN shows the dark side of mankind but sheds light on the best of it, for we all have inside of us this will to live together. This is the message that this film tries to convey. Together, united, we can meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.
