Disgustingly Healthy - Leeches and Maggots

Our two-part documentary is debut on ARTE: June 11, 7pm "Disgustingly Healthy: Leeches" and June 12, 7pm "Disgustingly Healthy: Maggots" Our films tell the story of the suspenseful rise, the dramatic fall and the surprising renaissance of the leeches and maggots in western medicine and the ambivalent relationship that we have to these little monsters. A liaison between fascination and disgust.
