Human, a new movie by Yann Arthus-Bertrand

Yann Arthus-Bertrand, the creator of Earth from Above and Home (see this post, July 2012) has just released a new documentary, Human, which explores the human condition through a sequence of personal testimonies interwoven with aerial views of the world. As such, it has similarities with his 6 Billion Others (2009).

You can read about it at Rotten Tomatoes or IMDB, although it was so new at the time of writing that neither had much to say about it. A positive review of it here concludes:

“Thanks to the unconditional and exceptional support of the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation, French TV France 2 and Google, this project produced by the GoodPlanet Foundation, will be accessible to the widest possible audience throughout the world. On September 12, Human Day, there will be a screening at the United Nations and it will be screened at the Venice Film Festival. Google will make the film available through dedicated YouTube channels with content in English, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic and French. These channels will offer three 90-minute films, forming a natural extension of the HUMAN project.”

The three parts of the (extended) movie are here: Vol. 1, Vol. 2, Vol. 3, while the movie’s home page and trailer can be found here.
