One of the most popular photo exhibitions in Denmark ever, ‘Earth from Above’ has been made into a film by the photographic master Yann Arthus-Bertrand. The film will premiere on November 11 2015 at CPH:DOX with the presence of the director.
The film ‘Human’ by Yann Arthus-Bertrand is a collection of interviews with over 2,000 people from 60 different countries and is the first film in the world to have its premiere at the General Assembly Hall in the UN. ‘Human’ is a sequel of Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s popular photo exhibition ‘Earth from Above’, which has been seen by more than 60 million people and has traveled the world. In Denmark the exhibtion caused a stir when the photos were shown at Kong’s Nytorv and became one of the most visited photographic installations ever in the country.
The film will premiere on November 11 at 18:00 at Bremen Teater during CPH:DOX, where the French master photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand himself will be present. ‘Human’ is a 3-hour long portrait of the inhabitants of our little planet, and is an incredibly beautiful and thought-provoking work, which has to be seen on the big screen at all cost.
While Bertrand is known for portraying the world from its most sublime angles, he has this time turned his camera on its inhabitants. ‘Human’ is a portrait of man all over Earth. Our differences and similarities, who we are and how we can live together. Both as a cinematic masterpiece and a sociological field study, ‘Human’ is in an absolute league of its own, and uses both close-ups and monumental wide angles to give us an overwhelming overall impression of a world that is at once strange and familiar.
The film will premiere on November 11 2015 at 18:00 at Bremen Teater. Ticket sale starts today. Buy your tickets here.
