Human (2015) (trailer)

90

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. 

Watch the 3 volumes of the film and experience #WhatMakesUsHUMAN. 

Part 1 deals with the themes of love, women, work and poverty.

Part 2 deals with the themes of war, forgiving, homosexuality, family and life after death.

Part 3 deals with the themes of happiness, education, disability, immigration, corruption and the meaning of life.

All three parts will play automatically one after the other, but you can also skip to each part using the control buttons under the player.


5 years after the success of ‘Home’, seen by more than 600 million people, and following the ‘7 billion Others’ project, Yann Arthus-Bertrand designed this film as a unique feature film : HUMAN

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.

HUMAN is part of an overall logic whose intention is to gather together initiatives and resources from the community scene and from the humanitarian, ecological or social sectors.
