A trilogy of films about tropical forests and the people and wildlife who depend on them, by independent filmmaker Steve Taylor. The first two documentaries in the series are available now.
Tropical rainforests are home to more than half the world’s species and play a crucial role in maintaining the health of our planet. Steve Taylor has travelled across Africa, Amazonia and Borneo to explore first-hand the complex issues of deforestation. Gorillas in Africa, river dolphins in Peru, orangutans in Borneo all feature, along with forest-dwelling people – traditional custodians of the forest.
Africa’s Green Heart
Africa’s Green Heart takes us from the slums and diamond pits of Sierra Leone to the depths of the Congo Basin. Dramatic film of bushmeat hunters and life on Congo riverboats contrast with rare gorilla behaviour and moving interviews with forest communities, loggers and conservationists.
”These beautiful, thought provoking films are both an educational resource and a call to action to ensure the forests survive.”
