The relationship between humans and animals offers an endless field of investigation. Philosophical, anthropological and social dimensions all overlap within it. Humans, who are both animals and separate from other animals, have historically defined what it means to be human, precisely in contrast to other living beings.
A collection of 12 short films (6'-8' each) illustrates the pressing needs of wildlife in diverse bio-geographical and marine regions, as well as the capacity for adaptation that species must develop in order to survive. For example, through agricultural activities or their abandonment, or in urban expansion, with cities housing a surprising range of species that often thrive among us without our knowledge, such as the hidden world of insects. Biodiversity and complex ecosystems are threatened by the imbalance and environmental disruption engendered by humans. However, humans and wildlife are interdependent. The aim of this film project is to envisage possibilities for a more sustainable relationship between Man, Animal and our Planet.
