Salamander: made to adapt

Much older than the dinosaurs or any other reptile, the salamander is one of the most fascinating species in the animal world.

From its first days on Earth to its amazing reproductive process and its incredible capacity to adapt, Samuel Ruffier explores the past, present and future challenges of this mythological animal. How can the salamander contribute to saving the future of humanity? How can its gait enable paralysed people to walk again one day? To what extent can its power of regeneration be applied to Man?

Through striking images, this film tells the unsuspected story of this 20-cm long amphibian.
