The Superpowers of the Bear

Direction : Thierry Robert & Remy MarionProduction : Le Cinquième Rêve, Arte, PÔLES D’IMAGES.2018
In our modern societies, osteoporosis, obesity, heart failure and kidney failure are wreaking havoc. Scientists believe that the response to these diseases, related to the aging and sedentary lifestyle of our population, flows into the bear’s veins. They are doctors or biologists, specialists in humans, but to develop treatments based on biomimicry, they do not hesitate to join the land of great predators: brown and black bears.
