A series of YouTube videos about the human condition is gaining attention for its deeply insightful and thought provoking messages.

Based on a film by Yann Arthus-Betrand called HUMAN,  its YouTube channel divides the movie’s aerial footage and first person stories filmed in 60 countries, into three volumes.

You can watch Clip #13 below. Entitled Love From The Most Unlikely Place this short is incredibly moving. So much so that we won’t tell you anything about it, except that it features a man serving a life sentence for killing a woman and a child, and how he came to understand that his perception of love, and how he treated others, was deeply rooted in a traumatic childhood.


Topics covered by this series include the struggles of poverty; war; homophobia, and the future of our planet, as well as lighter moments of love and happiness.

A very big thank you to Professor Joan Durrant for sharing this film with us.
