A film by Yann Arthus-Bertrand
"Human" is Yann Arthus Bertrand's next movie. Shooting will start in October. The ecological, economic and social challenges we face at the start of the 21st century urge us to adopt a new way of looking at the world. They may arouse fear or a feeling of helplessness, but they also give birth to new desires and creativity: a desire to change, to produce better, to live differently and to learn to share.
« When I started my combat as an ecologist, I would never have believed that the movement would finally lead to a step change in our civilization. Today, like many others, that seems evident to me. This is the message and the questions I want to disseminate ». Following on from his film HOME, Yann Arthus-Bertrand is keen to share the facts of our time and the beauty of the world with as many people as possible to raise the aware- ness and sense of responsibility of every individual. Drawing on the experience of 6 billion Others, he wants to produce a film focusing on human beings. « 6 billion Others made me realize the impact of intelligence and human diversity. I want to go out and record words that touch people and help bring about change ».
In HUMAN, his new film, Yann Arthus-Bertrand seeks to share with us the two-fold beauty of the world and its peo- ple. Like HOME, HUMAN will transport us to the most symbolic places in a world on the cusp of something that is ending and something that is being born. Like 6 billion Others, HUMAN will bear witness to the words of human beings, creating a bridge towards constructive reflection on what we have in common and what makes us different. The essential values we all share, the points of view and experiences that are so different – this is what makes us rich. Through this dual viewpoint - faces of the Earth, faces of people - HUMAN takes us on a journey from the profound intimacy of the human being to the grandiose beauty of Nature and the world.
