The Human Experience - Dignity in the Midst of Poverty
Two young men from Brooklyn, New York set out to find out what it means to live the gospel in misery and poverty. From the homeless in New York, to the forgotten orphans of Peru, to modern day leper colonies in Africa, we are presented with the powerful drama that is "the rest of the world". The masses living on the outskirts of the comfort zone that we know as modern daily life.
The creators of The Human Experience attempt "By spotlighting heartwarming stories from around the world, (to) show viewers that every single person, no matter his or her lot in life, is beautiful."
This award winning documentary is brought to us by Grassroot Films, which also produced Fishers of Men, to inspire vocations to priestly service and God in the Streets of New York City. Grassroots Films strives to "make great films that inspire true change". The Human Experience has won over 30 awards since its release last year and emphasizes this year's Catholic Campaign for Human Development theme: Fight Poverty. Defend Human Dignity.
A truly inspiring film for private or group viewing, highly recommended by Catholic Traveller's A Simple Catholic.
