Posted filed underFilm, Science, Videos.

“Prie Dieu” (Pray God in french) is one of the designation in France for the praying mantis.
Welcome in a world where insects are connected to a divine power by threads until they decide to commit the sin and break this link.

No insects were hurt during the shooting, all the threads were done during post-production.
