Being Human (French: Histoire d'être humain) is a 2005 documentary by Quebec film director Denys Desjardins. It was produced by Yves Bisaillon along with the production company National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and is categorized as a length feature.
Entering the daily lives of "problem cases" at a Montreal high school that sits at the bottom of school performance rankings, Denys Desjardins sweeps away preconceptions about the quality of teaching in disadvantaged neighbourhoods and the alleged delinquency of the kids who live there. "A subtle, captivating film that gives new impetus to the debate over public education." A far-reaching examination of student life that stimulates reflection on the role of school in our society and asks how willing we are to support and finance the school system so that it will not be merely a factory churning out parts for the social machine.
