In partnership with Alliance Française Halifax, the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 is hosting a special presentation of the film HUMAN. The French and English versions will be presented simultaneously. The English version of the film will be screened in the Windsor Foundation Classroom.
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.
This event is part of the annual Francofestival in Halifax.
