Being Human (2008)


Duration: 14’35”


Being Human is an experimental documentary about three conflicts involving six people. Confronted with the question which conflict they remember the most, they talk about the (im)possibility of communication and the human reactions to these situations: a conflict with the parents, non-communication between the storyteller and the other, and a conflict where the communication has become unbearable that the situation almost becomes violent.
