“El auge del humano” is an impressive work of direction which manages to portray the lives of youth in three different parts of the world: Argentina, Mozambique, and the Philippines. The focus is on the struggle to fit into the society and to find a decent job, a problem which older people seem not able to understand. Although the shaky camera movements give the general feel of a low-profile movie, the cinematography is actually astonishingly beautiful, with mind-blowing transitions to get from one place to the other side of the world. The result is a eulogy to the universal interconnectedness of people, which shows that everyone has the same problems, no matter what country they come from, what language they speak, what god they believe in, and how much money they have.
