What does it mean to be human? The documentary HUMAN is a cinematic attempt to answer this age-old question. By way of testimonies from a highly diverse group of individuals on topics that range from love and hatred to joy and sorrow, war and peace, the film presents a loving and multifaceted image of the human condition. These intimate anecdotes are paired with stunning aerial footage of the splendours of planet Earth, making for a visually spectacular exploration of the darkest corners and brightest summits of human nature.
