GREEN dvd cover

Multi award winning. Her name is GREEN, she is alone in a world that doesn’t belong to her. She is a female orangutan, victim of deforestation and resource exploitation. This film is an emotional journey with GREEN’s final days. It is a visual ride presenting the devastating impacts of logging and land clearing for palm oil plantations, the choking haze created by rainforest fires and the tragic end of rainforest biodiversity. We watch the effects of consumerism and are faced with our personal accountability in the loss of the world’s rainforest treasures.

GREEN was the surprise winner, generally programs with larger production budgets from the BBC, Discovery, National Geographic tend to secure Best of Fest at JHIWFF. However, this small self-financed film by Patrick Rouxel was the buzz of the conference.
