Les Mal-Aimés by Hélène Ducrocq (40 ‘/ France / 2020 – Produced by Citron Bien)
Our planet is teeming with life and we have a duty to protect it. But can this safeguard exist or be effective even when we ignore the role and functioning of most of the species, or rather, of those that most frighten us? This program of 4 short films shows with sweetness and tenderness the universe of some of these “unloved” animals to which stories and legends or simply prejudices have unfortunately given a bad name.
