In his newest film, Balog explores how environmental change is affecting the lives of everyday Americans. Following the four classical elements — air, earth, fire and water — Balog explores wildfires, hurricanes, sea level rise, coal mining and changes in air. This new documentary, directed by Matthew Testa, tells an urgent story while giving inspiration for a more balanced relationship between humanity and nature.
“The Human Element” follows Balog on an artistic journey to distill this crucial moment in environmental history into an approachable body of images and ideas, and he further humanizes this story of change by investigating how altering the elements is in turn affecting everyday Americans right now. Balog finds great hope that the fifth element, the human element, can bring the whole system back into balance.
