Jaud, Jean-Paul. Severn: La Voix de nos Enfants [Severn: The Voice of our Children]. Paris: Wide Management, 2010. 35 mm, 120 min.

At the Rio de Janeiro International Earth Summit in 1992, for the first time in history, a child stood up and questioned those responsible for taking care of our planet. Our actions do not reflect our words: Planet Earth is still in the same state today, and Severn, now an adult, is expecting her first child. She once again takes the floor, explaining that although the situation is urgent, there is still time to make a change. In this emotional documentary filled with hope, Severn stands as a reference for those who, from Canada to Japan, passing by France, are taking concrete and positive action to respect biodiversity. But who will answer Severn’s appeal for change? Severn, the Voice of Our Children is the sequel to Food Beware: The French Organic Revolution (aka That Should Not Be: Our Children Will Accuse Us). (Source: uniFrance)
