Tens of Thousands of Answers
People from all around the world are asked the same set of universal questions that are relevant to us all, no matter who we are or where we come from.
These range from personal questions about love, fear, death and laughter, to questions about the world we live in, community, innovation and the future.
They are the kind of questions that one interviewee described as ‘questions you instinctively know the answers to but are never asked.’
People speak in their mother tongue and the result is an incredibly diverse collection of professionally filmed answers expressed in over 35 languages; from Malayalam to Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese to Pidgin and French to Fon.
