// Aymeric Caron: Antispéciste / Humans and animals have a lot in common. These shared features include, for example, consciousness, sense of pain and emotions — / Every animal is a conscious and intelligent individual. Like humans, animals show empathy, solidarity and sense of justice. / Some species even have superhuman skills — / That’s right, don’t you think, Cadet? / … / *clip clop* / Well, you probably knew that already… / Or maybe he just didn’t dig my accent… //
// Antoine de Saint-Exupéry: Terre des Hommes / Two days after our plane crashed I’ve drank only a drop of rosé and walked almost 200 kilometres under the merciless sun. / My throat hasn’t yet dried completely, but it’s aching and sore. Small droplets of light have started their dance in the fringes of my vision. / The treacherous wind of the desert caresses my face and dries my blood with it’s every soft breath — / Oh please!! / Saint-Ex needed only keep himself alive! //
I recommend Terre des Hommes (Siipien sankarit suomeksi) to all who like the works of Hugo Pratt and Hayao Miyazaki who, in my opinion, share more or less the same world view and are amazing artists… When I grow up I’d like to be like one of them.
