The Alliance Francaise hosted a special screening this week of a very special documentary. And although the evening’s biggest name was unable to make it, the event still drew quite a crowd.

The evening was originally billed as “François Hollande, President of the French Republic, to Attend Special Screening of “HUMAN” by acclaimed director Yann Arthus-Bertrand at French Institute Alliance Française,” however, the French president was ultimately unable to attend.

Kino Lorber announced the acquisition of all North American rights to the documentary at the event. Award-winning French photographer and filmmaker Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s latest film presents a collection of stories and images from around the world, “offering an unprecedented cinematic immersion to the core of what it means to be human.”
