Human by Yann Arthurs-Bertrand

For anyone who has not seen this life-affirming piece simply must, it is breathtaking.I have watched it a few times now and have used it as a tool for many of the projects that  I have given to my students. It was the first movie to premiere in the General Assembly Hall of the United Nations, to an audience of 1,000 viewers, including the Un Secretary General Baan Ki-Moon.

The film was financed by the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation, which gave it rights-free to the GoodPlanetFoundation, responsible for driving the project. An extended version of the film is officially freely available on YouTube (in three parts)


It covers a range of topics such as war, family homosexuality, religion, ambition and failure. It is beautiful to watch as the film is almost exclusively composed of first-person and aerial shots .By watching it you too may get a sense of what it means to be “Human”.
