The Will to Live

Anne Gyrithe Bonne

Inspired with tragic events that followed after September 11, this documentary illustrates the will to live with life stories of great loss of three great people who did not resort to vengeance, hate and self-pity, but are instead using their own example to show us numerous aspects of love, hate and compassion and the ways in which they influence the world around us. In short, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, human-rights champion Juan Almendares and awarded Cambodian author Chanrithy Him will tell us about what makes humans human.
