Tuesday, April 18th, Alliance française Toronto will have the honor to welcome Yann Arthus-Bertrand for an exceptional evening.
At 6pm there will be a screening of HUMAN in company of the director (Short version of 2h23m will be presented)
HUMAN 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.
HUMAN is a politically engaged work which allows us to embrace the human condition and to reflect on the meaning of our existence.
Followed at 8:30pm by a debate-discussion with Yann Arthus-Bertrand leaded by Line Boily, journalist at Radio-Canada
At 9:15pm, the francophone book store La Mosaïque will sell his books which he can autograph.
