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 stories from more than 2,000 women and men in 60 countries. Working with his team, he captured personal and emotional accounts of topics that unite all human beings. Real-life stories about struggles with war, poverty, work, homophobia mixed with moments of love and happiness, tears and crying.
HUMAN brings spectators face to face with others, making them reflect on their own lives. From stories of everyday experiences to accounts of the most unbelievable lives, these poignant encounters share a rare sincerity and underline who people (we) are. It shows our darker side, but also what is most noble in us, and that as a whole is universally shared humanity.
