Peter Krämer: Rodina a lesní život v Bambim
Science in Pop CultureLectureEnglish friendly
Peter Krämer from De Montfort University (UK) is no stranger at AFO, having previously given presentations about science fiction films. This year he returns to the festival to talk about animal welfare in Bambi (1942).
Disney's fifth animated feature is a timeless classic and also, for many, a rather traumatic childhood movie experience. Bambi is a young deer whose life is twice disrupted by the intrusion of humans into the forest. How did this film come about? And what might its story about human destructiveness have to tell us today?
