HUMAN – Happiness, Education, Disability, Immigration, Corruption, Meaning of Life

“After interviews that went well, the people involved would often thank me, saying I was the first person to listen to them, or that it was the first time they’d said what they said. Despite spending so short a time together, you feel like you did something good for somebody, so you feel good, too.”
Anastasia Mikova, Head of interview shoots of the film HUMAN

Volume II

Welcome to the third volume of the trilogy of HUMAN! This is my invitation for you to take the time for some introspective and learn something about yourself and your fellow human beings.

In this volume people talk about they experiences of happiness, education, disability, immigration, corruption and the meaning of life.

This volume made me ponder about the following questions. What do you think?

  • What makes you really happy? When was that the last time?
  • How does your education helps and hinders you facing the challenges in your life? What qualities and skills should education encourage in a transitioning society?
  • What can we learn from disabled people?
  • Are borders an outdated concept?
  • What structures of society would avoid corruption?
  • Is there a meaing of life to you? What about your life?

As this is the last film of this trilogy, I hope you gained some insights during our journey and that you had the chance to connect with individual and universal human stories.

I hope that these stories and landscapes help broaden our vision, expand our conciousness and deepen our empathy for one another. If so, that is the best Christmas gift to me. Thank you!

I hope you will have some quality time with your loved ones, extended families, old and new friends. See you all back in 2016! :)

Season Greetings
