Beyond Human Boundaries – Season 1
The triumph of the human spirit.
Beyond Human Boundaries is a documentary-reality program which tells the story of Arman Alizad, an ordinary man, who travels with his cameraman to eight countries trying to get into a community, group, tribe or environment for 10 days. All communities are different, but they are all outside of Western culture and lifestyle. Arman experiences variety of lifestyles from a landfill site in Cambodia to gang life in the favela of Brazil, voodoo magic in Benin and living with the Bedouins in Saudi Arabia. Arman’s only chance of success is the strength and wisdom of his local mentor, who knows how to survive in such extreme circumstances.
This is not only a show of endurance, it’s an emotional story about people who live in some of our planet’s most unforgiving conditions whose unique lifestyle the viewers get to see from rarely close. This is a story of gaining trust and building friendships that crosses all barriers in some of the toughest corners of the world.
