Animal by Cyril Dion – France, | 2021 – 105 minutes | Documentary

16-year-old Bella and Vipulan are part of a generation convinced its very future is in danger. Between climate change and the 6th mass extinction of wildlife, their world could well be uninhabitable 50 years from now. So they’ve decided to tackle the root of the problem: our relationship with the living world. They come to realize just how deeply humans are tied to all other living species. And that by saving them… we’re also saving ourselves. Humans are part and parcel of nature. For man is, after all, an animal. (SIEFF 2022)
