Website
Just like the children who are the subject of this documentary, the microsite for Alphée des étoiles is a little gem. Represented by a constellation of stars evoking human cells and genetics, it features interactive cards on the topic of rare diseases, portraits of four families with a child dealing with a rare disease, additional interviews with specialists and links to resources. Also available is a tablet app game for children with a concept echoing the stars/cells idea from the site. In it, the child has to reconstruct a spirograph-shaped star using different shapes. The game has twelve levels of difficulty and features animation, sounds for each manipulation and bright colours designed to capture the interest of young children.
