‘HUMAN’ is a documentary by Yann Arthus-Bertrand that explores the human condition. Weaving the stories of more than 2000 women and men across 60 countries, this film has captured deeply personal and emotional accounts of the things that both unite and divide us.
The planet is shown through some of the most sublime aerial shots of earth intertwined with a series of immersive stories that explore the full spectrum of the human experience. The result is an ode to the beauty of mankind, inspiring us to reflect on how we personally navigate the world and the seven billion others like us.
I am one man among seven billion others. For the past 40 years, I have been photographing our planet and its human diversity, and I have the feeling that humanity is not making any progress. We can’t always manage to live together.
Why is that? I didn’t look for an answer in statistics or analysis, but in man himself.
– Yann Arthus-Bertrand
