Human – Breaking the Spell

Another interview clip from Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s film, ‘Human’ – a soldier’s story. This one feels relevant and timely in our world as is, perhaps especially so in its context of ‘breaking the spell’ – a heat-of-the-moment experience of suddenly encountering a sense of shared humanity, and the power of that to dissolve hatred and vengefulness. We need this learning, with great urgency.

Here’s the short description for the ‘Human’ project/fim:-

‘What is it that makes us human? Is it that we love, that we fight? That we laugh? Cry? Our curiosity? Driven by these questions, filmmaker and artist Yann Arthus-Bertrand spent three years collecting real-life stories from 2,000 women and men in 60 countries. Working with a dedicated team of translators, journalists and cameramen, Yann captures deeply personal and emotional accounts of topics that unite us all; struggles with poverty, war, homophobia, and the future of our planet mixed with moments of love and happiness.’
