The Human Experience

The Human Experience

The folks at Aggie Catholics really liked the movie “The Human Experience”, which was made by Grassroots Films, the same folks who created “Fishers of Men” and “God in the Streets of New York.”

The story of the film revolves around a young man and his brother and their quest to find what it means to be human in light of their own experiences and struggles. They have three different life-transforming experiences in search of the answers to the questions about the meaning and purpose of life. What does it mean to be a human? Why do we have to suffer? Where is God? Where can we find hope?


This movie moved me because it tells us what humanity is all about. It put on film what it means to be a human and that our identity is tied up in our great dignity. This came a perfect time for me, because I have recently been thinking deeply about the issue of human identity and dignity.

The makers of this film have done us all a favor. They have made a pro-life film, without ever talking about abortion, euthanasia or other pro-life issues. It is pro-life because it is pro-human. They have made a pro-Christ film without explicitly talking about Him. This is the kind of movie that can move anyone who sees it.
