HUMAN, Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s documentary asks us to have more empathy for others
French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand has presented his documentary, HUMAN, in Italy, and revealed his next work will be dedicated to women.
HUMAN, latest documentary by French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, started being screened in Italian movie theatres on 29 February, after being presented at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival and premiered at the General Assembly of the United Nations. Through the stories – full of love and happiness, as well as hatred and violence – of women, men and children from all over the world, the film tells how the idea of humanity and the relationships among people and community are changing. The three-hour documentary is switched between tens of first-person stories and spectacular aerial views – Bertrand’s trade mark –, accompanied by a perfect soundtrack.
Many have already participated in special screenings in different cities, but only few had the opportunity of taking part to Milan’s screening, held on 1 March, with Arthus-Bertrand himself, who commented his documentary and answered public’s questions in the movie theatre.
“We’re living complicated times, and it’s the very first time that the future of humanity is so uncertain. Climate change, natural resource impoverishment, the unbridgeable gap between the world’s rich and poor, thousands of people that have nothing and try to reach Europe,” said Arthus-Bertrand. “I hope this movie will contribute to giving the empathy people need to live together, in harmony”.
Moreover, the French photographer said his next work will be entitled Woman, because “in the making of Human, the need of telling the role women play and what they’re still forced to endure was so clear to us”.
Human can be watched on YouTube, and many interviews have been published in a richer and more complete version, including that of Uruguay’s former president José Mujica, who talked about moderation and our unnecessary longing for producing and consuming as if resources were unlimited.
