Throughout my intensive work of 25 years in Indonesia, I have witnessed the extent of environmental destruction of the country by multinational corporations and corrupt local officials.
Now, I am returning to Borneo/Kalimantan Island to make two films, one short and the other full feature documentary in order to revert the destructive trend and to call to action both Indonesian and the world public. Like the Amazonian rainforest, islands in Borneo and Sumatra have long served as the lungs of our planet, known for its diverse fauna and flora. Now almost no native forest is left intact, and countless species are near extenction, including world famous orangutan.
Due to the urgency of the situation, I need to begin working on the first documentary already in September 2017. The entire project may require up to 2 years of work. The funds I will raise here will at least partially cover the travels and film production.
Please join me and Indonesia patriots in saving Borneo/Kalimantan Island.
