"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 feature film : HUMAN
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.
HUMAN shows the dark side of mankind but sheds 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 tries to convey. Together, united, we can meet
the challenges of today and tomorrow.
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."
