Music is one of the most powerful conveners of people. But once you have sixty thousand people in Central Park to hear their favorite musicians, film is the most effected way to transform the audience from music lovers to global citizens who want to make a difference. The Global Citizen Festival is a live music event taking place in New York's Central Park to compel leaders and citizens to do more to help end extreme poverty. HUMAN had the great honor and responsibility of architecting the media and messaging since the inaugural concert in 2012 with Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, Black Keys, K'Naan and Band of Horses along with special guest, John Legend. 2013 saw HUMAN as a producer of the Global Citizen Festival and once again we asked the thousands of people in the park and millions more online viewing our media to reimagine the world without extreme poverty. This film was part of the media package we created which premiered at the Festival.
