A CAPTIVATING AND INSTRUCTIVE DOCUMENTARY ABOUT ACTIVISM AND CONSERVATION
Bella and Vipulan believe in a different way of living together, one in which people no longer exploit nature. On a journey around the world, the two 16-year-olds search for solutions to avert the approaching catastrophe. Accompanied by filmmaker Cyril Dion, the youngsters’ interview researchers, farmers and politicians about the future of humanity. Dion captures their thoughts in a sensitive way and at the same time impresses us with nature shots, the beauty of the earth as well as images of polluted seas and dying animals. The film impressively shows that for the love of all living things, it is fundamental to stop the extinction of species. (VW)
