"Can Gentle Survive?"
EarthViews Productions
Stan Minasian and Hardy Jones, Producers
10 minutes

Manatees, often called "Sea Cows", are one of the gentlest and most docile creatures in all of nature. They have been at the center of a long-running feud in Florida waters between recreational boaters who strike and kill dozens of manatees every year, and those who wish to save these animals. Noise pollution, the draining of their native rivers, hydroelectric power plants, and a multitude of other human activities all contribute to the potential demise of these extraordinary creatures.

"Ituri: Land of the Okapi"
S.O. Taylor, Producer
20 minutes
Country: Democratic Republic of Congo
* North America Premiere

The Ituri can be described as Africa's last remaining true frontier wildernesses and with the resources of this remote African region in great demand we need to be aware of the need to conserve this regions rich bio-diversity if the wildlife and the indigenous peoples of the Ituri are to have a sustainable future. This is a region of undocumented rich and unique wildlife such as the Okapi found only within these vast equatorial rain-forests  the Mbuti Pygmy's are said to have inhabited this regions forests as hunter gathers for the last 15,000 years.


" Spirits of the Congo"
Oscar Portillo, Producer
Explora Films
52 minutes
* World Premeire

Few places in the world are so little-known as the impenetrable jungles of the Congo. Deep in the jungle, the stories of explorers, journalists, scientists and missionaries, stories that seem to spring from fevers and the imagination, gradually take shape. The legends come alive when the Baaka Pygmies guide our cameras into the lush vegetation to show us the reality behind the myths. Genocidal kings, living dinosaurs, peaceful giants, demonic killers, etc. The spirits of the jungle are backed by rational explanations with scientific and historical analysis. although such analysis may reveal the reality is much more terrible than fantasy of the legends.


* Q & A with Ian Redmond,
Ambassador, United Nations Environment Program (UNEP)
