HUMAN is a 2015 documentary by French environmentalist Yann Arthus-Bertrand. The film is almost entirely composed of exclusive aerial footage and first-person stories told into the camera. It was the first movie to premiere in the General Assembly Hall of the United Nations, to an audience which included U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. HUMAN is a collection of stories and images of our world, offering an immersion to the core of what it means to be human. From stories of everyday experiences to accounts of the most unbelievable lives, these poignant encounters share a rare sincerity and underline who we are – our darker side, but also what is most noble in us, and what is universal. Our Earth is shown at its most sublime through never-before-seen aerial images accompanied by soaring music, resulting in an ode to the beauty of the world, providing a moment to draw breath and for introspection. HUMAN is a politically engaged work which allows us to embrace the human condition and to reflect on the meaning of our existence.


Entrance fee is R100.00/person and includes a buffet with dishes from various parts of the world. Entrance is at 18:30 and screening starts at 19:30. The movie lasts 3h11. HUMAN will also be screen at the Bioscope on the 23rd, 24th and 25th of May, without buffet and an entrance fee of R45.00/person.


This event is supported by the Alliance Française in Southern Africa, the Fondation Alliance française, and the Fondation GoodPlanet, the Bioscope and the French Institute of South Africa.
