Synopsis
May 2020, Limburg (Belgium). A peasant family is vaccinating their animals.

 

Concept

The human being is the only animal that could face self-extinction: in its desperate search for immortality, it has the ability to dig deeper into a process of dehumanization.

 

“Make no mistake, they are connected, these disease outbreaks coming one after another. And they are not simply happening to us; they represent the unintended results of things we are doing. They reflect the convergence of two forms of crisis on our planet. The first crisis is ecological, the second is medical.”

 

― David Quammen, Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic

 

"...the most serious outbreak on the planet earth is that of the species Homo sapiens"

 

― Alan A. Berryman, The Theory and Classification of Outbreaks
