The Disconnection

The DISCONNECTION will take you on an extraordinary journey of discovery, combining earth’s beauty and one of our greatest needs as human beings.

This short film highlights the disconnect between our fellow earthlings, the animal and the shocking reality of our choices today. It calls into awareness the way we view and treat animals as a defining characteristic of our own species.

Amongst the beauty and the pain, the film inspires hope, a way to come into reconnection with the earth and its inhabitants, which is accessible to all of us.
All that is needed is what we already have within, compassion.

Director Biography - Frank Metivier

About 16 years ago I started documenting my travels as a way to tell my story to people who wasn’t there. I wanted to share my adventures with everyone across the globe.

In 2018 my empathy and compassion for the suffering of animals convinced me to live a vegan lifestyle and to become an animal advocate.

Since then the topic of my videography has mostly been about documenting the hidden reality of animal exploitation.
