6 billion others & counting
‘6 billion others’: the number of human beings on Earth. And it’s growing. The site comes with a persons counter that doesn’t stop going up, if you’d like to see the latest number.
The initiative was created to show everything that unites us, links us and differentiates us. As you may find on their website, the project consists in “6,000 interviews filmed in 84 countries by about twenty directors who went in search of the Others. From a Brazilian fisherman to a Chinese shopkeeper, from a German performer to an Afghan farmer, all answered the same questions about their fears, dreams, ordeals, hopes: What have you learnt from your parents? What do you want to pass on to your children? What difficult circumstances have you been through? What does love mean to you?”
