Interview: Florent Girard - Creative Producer
In this week's episode we talk with Florent Girard, the Creative Producer and Artistic Director for Human the Documentary. We discuss a documentary that's probably the most wide ranging documentary in scale and size that's ever been attempted (60 countries and 2000 interviews), what it's like to release a film that's a non-profit venture, and how Tree of Life had an impact on the film.
HUMAN is a collection of stories about 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.
