‘Human’ the Movie

I began watching this film, Human, because the cinematography is mesmerizing. At first I didn’t understand what it was about, and didn’t need to.

It began to gel, though, when people started talking about love. From all over the world, they shared from their heart what love means to them. Touching. Profound. Sometimes, amusing.

The film took a slow, wide-angle turn from there, wending its way through various aspects of being Human. Rather a broad experience, there are three volumes. All of it, great art.

Eventually, I grasped what Human the Movie is about. It’s an invitation to all of humanity to rejoin the human race.

Human Vol. 1

Turn on the Closed Captions (CC) to know the countries where the images were filmed and the first name of the interviewees.

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.

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

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
