‘Human’ Transcends Hate
The Commons @ BALE, South Royalton on Mon., Nov. 14 at 7 PM.
Here’s a chance to sit with others who are feeling the pain of this moment and experience the awesome beauty of this earth. This as a powerful antidote to the hate-filled speech of our just-elected President: Human (the film) is a collection of stories and images of our world, offering an immersion to the core of what it means to be human. Through these stories full of love and happiness, as well as hatred and violence, Human brings us face to face with the Other, making us reflect on our lives. 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. It is a politically engaged work that allows us to embrace the human condition and to reflect on the meaning of our existence.
