Documentary: The Human Experience



The Human Experience is a great documentary that follows two brothers from a broken home as they travel the world in search of the meaning of life. What is your purpose on this planet? What does it mean to really be human? These are just a few questions explored as the brothers (1) live with the homeless of NYC, (2) visit the forgotten children of Peru, and (3) talk with a lepers colony in Africa.

The most touching story was of a homeless woman who said that on a cold night in NYC, she was sitting on the streets with three dogs. People were frantically calling their friends to see who could take a dog for the night so it didn't freeze to death. All three dogs were "rescued," but the woman was left on the streets.

  1. Marcie,
    I saw the trailer for this movie and bought it immediately. I was so touched by this documentary. I cried when the homeless woman was telling that story. It just proves that we all have a basic human need to feel loved. So many people have never experienced it and it just takes one act of kindness to change that.
    Hope you enjoyed your long weekend!
