Filmmaker and artist, Yann Arthus-Bertrand has created a film which is a masterpiece of beautiful images, heart-wrenching stories, enlightened views and difficult questions. HUMAN is the story of us all. Real people, real struggles, real memoirs - a story of #WhatMakesUsHUMAN.
I watched the entire first volume of this inspirational film, (There are more volumes.) thanks to Google. Google, along with the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation, French TV France 2, and the GoodPlanet Foundation, made it possible for Yann to bring the world these films. I am grateful!
In my ministry and in my life, I have found that when we remember we are all part of humanity, magic happens. Thanks to instant media, we have all been witnesses of this. Our humanity has been present in the various natural disasters that have raced across this tiny planet of ours as strangers help each other survive. Our humanity has shown in our own communities when we join together to help one another through sickness, sudden tragedy or death. Our humanity is what brings out the best in us. HUMAN is another example of this magic.
One of the beauties of this film is that everyone one is represented, regardless of race, gender, religion or nationality. Stories that inspire, touch the heart, ask difficult questions, rage against inequities and bring great hope are the stories of us all. These are interspersed with breath-taking images of humans in their home environments.
HUMAN is a poem on film about us, all of us. What a blessing!
