Human the movie

Human the movie

Start 2016 with Human, a beautiful documentary about humanity, love, life and the planet :-).
Watching the three films I was incredibly touched by the stories from people young and old across the world and seeing the awe inspiring scenic shots.
One of my favourite interviews was Jose Mujica “the worlds poorest president.”
“When you buy something, you’re paying with the hours of your life you had to spend earning that money. The difference is that life is the one thing money cant buy. Life only gets shorter and it is pitiful to waste ones life and freedom that way.” Jose Mujica
We need more stories

We need more stories

Incredibly thought provoking talk by Chimamanda Adichie: The danger of a single story

that is how to create a single story. Show a people as one thing, as only one thing, over and over again and that is what they become

“Power is the ability not only to tell the story of a person but to make it the definitive story of the person”

The consequence of the single story is this, it robs people of dignity.. it emphasises how we are different not how we are similar
