The Human Link Sam Motazedi

Film index A to Z

Organized in three chapters, each representing a geographical area – Buenos Aires, Europe, the Middle East – The Human Link is an interactive site that invites us to see the hopes and struggles of people around the world. Documentary profiles of various durations and photographs, made in collaboration with the protagonists, provide insight into each individual’s world. An interactive map gives the user numerous entry points to choose from. It all helps us to better understand the many complex everyday issues faced by different people, from disadvantaged families in Buenos Aires to LGBTQ activists in the Middle East and refugees in Europe. A deeply humanist project.
