Alan Stivelman says of himself:
I was born in the eighties, in the year of the Tiger, in the bustling city of Buenos Aires. I was told I had dozens of lives on Earth, and I hope this is my last incarnation. If it is, it means that I have done a good job. I am not interested in knowing my becoming, but I want to be sure of my present. I believe that art and transforming mine and other mortals consciences, are my thing. I want to live of filmmaking, generating quality contents, and always betting on innovation in new forms of communication.
I am interested in using technology in movies, which is why I stop to think which technology tools would help the production and distribution of each project I start. Filmmaking as conceived by the founders of the seventh art is on the verge of a transformation. I don’t really know what it will become, but I like to think that I am contributing a bit in the filmmaking of the future: a more democratic, plural and expansive way, based on technology and good ideas.
HUMANO is my first feature film. I hope it would open a path of many more movies. HUMANO is a journey born out of a young man’s two hundred questions, the answers to which would expose a world completely unknown to him, and to the majority of Humanity. Discover the true origin of man, and what it means to be Human. To most of us, today remains a mystery, but the Shamans of the Andes might have the key to discover the hidden meanings and truths?
Alan is twenty-five years old and is looking for the reason of his existence, the meaning of life. A camera and a notebook filled with questions are the only items he needs to set off on a journey to the Andes range. With Placido, an Andean paqo (“priest”), he will be taken on an introspective journey such as has never been documented before.
