Film 2: Conversations 4 Conservation

This film will involve three stages. The initial stage will be the screening of Voices4Forests to palm oil plantation managers. Their reactions to the testimonies given by the forest communities will be filmed and documented. The plantation managers will then have the opportunity to respond on camera, and answer any issues, criticisms, or questions raised by those speaking in Voices4Forests. The responses of the plantation managers will then be shown to the forest people, and their responses and reactions will also be filmed. Finally, an edited final film will be produced which is a synopsis of every stage in this process – a filmed conversation or dialogue, in a sense. This version will be made available to the RSPO, local and national government officials, and to representatives from environmental and social NGOs. It will also be made available globally through our online library of conservation films at We anticipate that this final film will be approximately 15 – 20 minutes in length.
