Human Emotion Project is a non-profit group which has to date screened in many countries and supported the works of artists globally. The project is about collaboration and communication across borders, where Art makes all things possible. HEP started in Australia in 2009 and since then has screened in Denmark, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Sweden, Georgia, Portugal, China and Torino Film Festival and Optica Festival. Now in 2010 HEP takes part in screenings at Cannes Film Festival, and will also run in Finland, Switzerland, Poland, Portugal, France, Iraq, Iran, Turkey, USA, RSA and Greece. Drawn together by the art that they share via the internet, artists with disparate cultural and aesthetic identities
approach the internal workings that exist in all humans. Emotions are inherently difficult to explicate.
How does one describe fear? We know it when we feel it but how can we share, through the paltry use of language, our experience of it? Moving images, mostly embellished with sound, extend the expressive possibilities beyond what can be accomplished through language or even static imagery. By employing the largest palette of creative possibilities, film and video artists from around the world strive to externalize those complex driving forces that we all enjoy and endure and that bind us, as humanity, together despite our differences.
