FRANK METIVIER: The award-winning short film ‘The Disconnect’ highlights the disconnect between our fellow earthlings, the animal and the shocking reality of our choices today. Directed by Frank Metivier, the film calls into awareness the way we view and treat animals as a defining characteristic of our own species. The Disconnection will take you on an extraordinary journey of discovery, combining earth’s beauty and one of our greatest needs as human beings.
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…
Having been a world traveller for most of his life, Francis “Frank” Metivier, known as “The Vigorous Vegan Vagabond,” is now on a mission to promote a compassionate vegan lifestyle while still travelling the globe.
