The film will be based on interviews of men and women from all walks of life and on exclusive aerial images, recorded and shot in about 60 countries.
Human will be the first feature film led by two foundations: the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation and the GoodPlanet Foundation.

THE FILM

5 YEARS AFTER THE SUCCESS OF ‘HOME’, SEEN BY MORE THAN 600 MILLION PEOPLE, AND FOLLOWING THE ’7 BILLION OTHERS’ PROJECT, YANN ARTHUS-BERTRAND DESIGNED THIS FILM AS A UNIQUE PROJECT OF FEATURE DOCUMENTARY.

 

THE INTERVIEWS OF MEN AND WOMEN TELLING THEIR STORIES FACING THE CAMERA WILL BE THE SINGLE FOCUS OF ‘HUMAN’. THE BEAUTY OF THE EXCLUSIVE AERIAL IMAGES WILL GIVE THE NECESSARY HINDSIGHT AND ONIRISM TO MAKE SUCH A UNIQUE MOVIE

 

FULLY FUNDED BY NON-PROFIT FOUNDATIONS RECOGNIZED FOR THEIR PUBLIC UTILITY,
THIS FILM WILL BE FREE AND MADE AVAILABLE TO THE GREATEST NUMBER.

 

IN ADDITION, A NEW WEBSITE CONTAINING HOURS OF VIDEOS, HUNDREDS OF INTERVIEWS, EXCLUSIVE AERIAL SHOTS AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION WILL ALLOW YOU TO GET A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE FILM’S THEMATICS.

THOUSANDS OF TESTIMONIES
AERIAL IMAGES

Like every story, this one has a beginning. One day, in Mali, Yann Arthus-Bertrand was the victim of a helicopter breakdown.

While waiting for the pilot, he spent the entire day in with a farmer who spoke to him, with great dignity and without complaint, of his daily life, his hopes, his fears and of his sole ambition: to feed his children. Yann remains deeply marked by this encounter, this man to whom he felt so close.

 

Human‘ aims to be a sensitive and loving portrait of who we are, as a community, a family but most importantly as individuals.

 

This documentary film will be an introspection that will try to answer the universal and ancestral question of who we are and what we aspire to.

 

‘Human’ will show the dark side of mankind but will shed light on the best of it, for we all have inside of us this will to live together.
This is the message that this film will try to convey.
Together, united, we can meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.

For HUMAN’s premiere, we had to find a symbolic place and date.
Yann Arthus-Bertrand has been committed to the United Nations for a long time now, as a UN Goodwill Ambassador to Environmental Program. Yann Arthus-Bertrand is working jointly with Ban Ki Moon and various UN agencies towards a possible film premiere during the UN General Assembly in September 2015.

 

Human‘ is part of an overall logic whose intention is to gather together initiatives and resources from the community scene and from the humanitarian, ecological or social sectors.

 

3 years and almost 90 shootings will be necessary to achieve this goal.
A very important part will be given to music in the movie. Like ‘Home’, the music of ‘Human’ will be composed by Armand Amar.
The film alone will not be enough to carry out such a project. ‘Human‘,
as a feature film, will be the starting point of a massive interactive and collaborative project.
