Yann Arthus-Bertrand has released “Human”, his documentary which puts into perspective the relationship between Man and the Earth, for free.
The stories of 2,000 women and men in 60 countries
What makes us human ? Is it loving, is it fighting? Laughing? To cry ? Our curiosity? Our quest for discovery? Driven by these questions, director and photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand spent three years collecting the stories of 2,000 women and men in 60 countries. With his passionate team of translators, journalists and cameramen, Yann has captured in depth the emotions and subjects that unite us all: the struggles against poverty, war, homophobia and the future of our planet, mixed with moments of love and happiness. “It seems to me that this period should allow us to rethink our world”, explains the photographer-director. Composed of aerial views and many testimonials, the free access film is in cinema version.
Testimonies in 63 different languages
Filmed in 60 countries for more than 2 years, the 2020 people interviewed look us straight in the eye and give us authentic and profound testimonies in 63 different languages. Composed of aerial images and face-to-face testimonials, this singular fresco paints a portrait of today’s humanity that resonates in each of us. Through testimonies filled with love, happiness, but also hatred and violence, HUMAN confronts us with the Other and sends us back to our own life. From the smallest daily story to the most incredible life stories, these poignant encounters of rare sincerity highlight what we are, our darkest part but also what we have that is most beautiful and more universal. The Earth is sublimated through unpublished aerial images accompanied by the music of Armand Amar, which testify to the beauty of the world and offer us moments of breathing and introspection.
HUMAN being present on YouTube, it is possible to find the names of the interviewees and the countries where the filming took place.
