Un impulso colectivo - Curts Spain 13 min Documentary


“If we vanished tomorrow, no organism on this planet would miss us. Nothing in nature needs us”. María Cañas meets the Anthropocene in this search-footage film starring the animals that (hopefully) will take over the world when the most harmful species (the human one) materializes its own destruction.
