Charley Locke reports in Wired about filmmaker Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s epic documentary, Human. "A few years ago," he writes, "Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s helicopter broke down in rural Mali. While waiting for repairs, the filmmaker spent a day talking with a local farmer about his hopes, concerns, and priorities—examining the basic questions that shape a life. 'It was the first time I had ever been confronted with really finding out about a person’s life and experiences,' Arthus-Bertrand says. And now, thanks to Google, the United Nations, and 2,020 willing subjects, Arthus-Bertrand hopes to bring that experience to all of us.

"To create Human, Arthus-Bertrand and his team of 16 journalists interviewed 2,020 people in 60 countries. Each interview consisted of the same 40 questions, covering heavy subjects from religion and family ('When is the last time you said "I love you" to your parents?') to ambition and failure ('What is the toughest trial you have had to face, and what did you learn from it?')."

Here's a sample of the first movie ever to premiere in the General Assembly Hall of the United Nations:
