5 YEARS AFTER THE SUCCESS OF THE PROJECT “7 BILLION OTHERS” AND ITS OVER 350 MILLION VISITORS, YANN ARTHUS-BERTRAND AND THE GOODPLANET FOUNDATION ARE PRESENTING THE EXHIBITION “HUMAN”.
Although universal subjects exist, each story is unique. That is the basic premise of HUMAN, the latest film produced by photographer and director Yann Arthus-Bertrand. The story of 2020 people interviewed in 60 countries over 2 years, told straight to the camera, providing authentic and in-depth eye-witness accounts in 63 different languages, interspersed with gripping aerial sequences.
In April 2017, the GoodPlanet Foundation will be presenting the Exhibition HUMAN at the Domaine de Longchamp. Inspired by the film, the exhibition depicts humanity today. The same essential questions about the human condition were put to the people in the film and the exhibition, regardless of their country, age or religion. Do you feel free? What is the meaning of life? What is the most difficult challenge you have faced and what have you learnt from it? What is your message to the inhabitants of the planet? Each time, intimacy and spontaneity prevailed over the questionnaire, resulting in genuine encounters between the journalists and the interviewees. They open up and recount their Life often for more than an hour at a time. By placing the ills of humanity at the heart of HUMAN, Yann Arthus-Bertrand has produced his most committed work yet with this film accompanied by the exhibition. A journey to the heart of the human soul, with majestic aerial shots providing the dreamlike sub-theme.
“We spent two years travelling across 60 countries, conducting more than 2020 interviews… to reach out to others. Those whom we talk about, and above all those of whom we never speak. HUMAN is the voice of all the men and women who confided their story to me. It is their messenger.” Yann Arthus-Bertrand
