Our world is a magical place, filled with extraordinary people doing incredible things. Some are beautiful and inspiring; some are fearsome and strange, others are little more than echoes from the past, or have already passed into memory. But whatever it is we see – or think we see – on the surface, underneath they all have one thing that connects them. They are all part of our family. They are all human.
From the Swiss cow-herd to the Kazakh eagle hunter, from the Saltillo guitar player to the Japanese geisha, we are dazzled by the variety of our lives, by the eye-opening costumes, near-impossible skills, outlandish lifestyles. But if we could look beneath the surface, we would see more similarity than difference. We would see people who need to eat and drink, people who love their family and friends, people who laugh and dance and sing, people who make mistakes and are afraid. People who need their neighbours.
Meet your neighbours. Culture to culture. Human to human. Head to head.
