HUMAN. The Movie.

HUMAN. The Movie. What makes us human.

Forget for a second all the stupid things we worry about,   APS   FF   s35   UHD   FPS  
DR   IBIS   ISO   DOF   RAW   LOG   LUT   THEFUCK, all those stupid things.  Human
shows (spoken) portraits of people around the world and (aerial) beautiful,
extraordinarily beautiful, views of the Earth.  Get your favourite armchair and wonderful
4K display and 90 minutes for yourself and watch it.  Or use your 7 inch tablet whilst a TV
is screaming in the next room.  Watch it.

Human is made up of 200 incredibly personal portraits. Interviews with people from
all walks of life, and that expose many aspects of what makes us human.


Human has just been released in several formats (more info on the official site).
There's a special extended version (3 volumes of about 90 minutes each)
that can be watched on youtube thanks to an arrangement with Google.  It is
available with embedded subtitles, and there are more languages than the three
I show here.  Choose the one you feel more comfortable with.

“I dreamed of a film in which the power of words would resonate with the beauty of
the world. The movie relates the voices of all those, men and women, who
entrusted me with their stories. And it becomes their messenger.”
Director Yann Arthus-Bertrand


There is a lot of behind the scenes info here, but I'd suggest going there only after 
you've watched the movie.

(I must confess I couldn't avoid thinking in terms of sharpness, 
lighting, and colours.  But that's because I'm stupid.)


These three voices – People’s word, Earth’s testimonial et Music’s lyrism –
act together to provide a single voice to our humanities.
As an ode to humanity, HUMAN is a rare collection of stories, faces and fates.
Yann-Arthus Bertrand takes us into an immersive experience through
human destiny. Through several witnesses who succeed one another
and confide, the film director portrays a contrasted humanity.
Through the aerial sequences, Yann Arthus-Bertrand shares his vision of the world
and the people with the spectator, and offers a poetic and critical insight
of our planet. In HUMAN, the camera lens reveals places of an unsuspected
beauty, but also poses a careful look at the lives of men worldwide.
As an universal language, music transcends our emotions,
sublimates the pictures and rhythmises the story.
