If eyes are the mirrors of the soul, do we all have the same desires . . . what does it mean to be “human”? Why is it still so hard to understand one another?
Traveling through 65 countries in search of answers, filmmaker and artist Yann Arthus-Bertrand captured the voices of “people we talk about … people we never talk about”. The wealth and diversity of these voices reveal the heart of humanity.

What is it that makes us human? Is it that we love, that we fight ? That we laugh ? Cry ? Our curiosity ? The quest for discovery ?
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.
