Yann Arthus-Bertrand • France • 2016 • An immersion to the core of what it means to be human.
Humans dwell in nearly every corner of our planet. Despite their language, ethnicity, age, or gender, each knows moments of beauty as well of struggle and devastation. Over the course of two years, a French filmmaker sits down with over 2,000 subjects, listening to stories of love and happiness, hatred and violence. An ontological question lingers—what does it mean to be human?
A collection of stories and images of our world, Human offers an immersion to the core of what it means to be human in the age of the Anthropocene. Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s fourth documentary premiered at Venice, CPH:DOX, Göteborg, and Vancouver, where it won Most Popular International Documentary Film.
