Human All Too Human: Jean-Paul Sartre, Friedrich Nietzsche, Martin Heidegger

Interesting look at three of the most important philosophers/authors of the 20th Century.
Human, All Too Human is a three-part 1999 documentary television series produced by the BBC. It follows the lives of three prominent philosophers; Friedrich Nietzsche, Martin Heidegger, and Jean-Paul Sartre. The theme of this documentary revolves heavily around the school of philosophical thought known as existentialism, although the term had not been coined at the time of Nietzsche’s writing, and Heidegger declaimed the label. The documentary is named after the 1878 book written by Nietzsche.
Sartre: The road to freedom.

Heidegger: Thinking the unthinkable.

Nietzsche: Human all too human.
