Written and directed by Cécile Favier
What if one of the alternatives to psychotropics and other anxiolytics was at our fingertips, hands in the dirt, nose in a bunch of flowers, teeth crunching a freshly picked radish? What real physiological and psychological benefit does contact with a natural environment have on our health?
This documentary harvests the thoughts and feelings of the subjects and supervisors of three field experiments in the Grand-Est region (a therapeutic garden in a nursing home, a reintegration through horticulture centre and a school where certain classes take place outside).
This documentary shows the extent to which “free care for everyone", a real public health issue, is crucial to the construction of more peaceful and cooperative societies.
