Ser humano é entender a fragilidade de cada movimento que pode sempre ser o ultimo, e perceber o quanto isso pode ser crucial para definir cada passo dado durante a vida, seis diferentes relações de pessoas completamente diferentes sobre o que é ser humano.

Director’s Statement from Alan Alves, Director of Being.

I am a curious person, all the time trying to see the magic of the storytelling that is the real life day by day minute after minute of our lives. By all forms of media such as audio, visual, storytelling I can create the more powerful piece of art creating and recreating ideas, stories, concepts and feelings. I am completely passionate about the art of expressing myself as a filmmaker by the importance of saying what I have inside me, the image in movement rules my life.
I want to create videos that have a strong connection with life, I want to say what I think about life.
The last film that I produce and directed, called Being is a documentary that argues about the meaning and of the importance of to being human, I questioned persons about their self-relationships with the world around them.
The life, literature and philosophy move my thoughts, and the films that I do are the result of all that affects me.
