Film 1: Voices 4 Forests

This short film will be comprised of oral testimonies collected within the forest communities living in Jambi and Riau provinces. The testimonies will focus on the impact and effect of palm oil expansion on the quality of daily life, income, health and experience, and their hopes and fears for the future. We will endeavour to ensure that all the many voices within the forest community are represented – so not just the community leaders and elders but also the opinions, experiences, and voices of women, and children, if possible. We anticipate that this film will be approximately 10 minutes in length.
