Produced by Denise and Marc Dragiewicz (Madagascar)
Madagascars ecosystem is one of the most threatened on the planet. By drawing attention to the needs of this unique environment, it is possible to illustrate how the disruption of a fragile ecosystem can lead to catastrophic consequences not only for people inhabiting the land but for global weather patterns as well.
THE BURNING OF BORNEO'S PEAT SWAMP RAINFOREST
Produced by Denise and Marc Dragiewicz (Indonesia)
Though less than a hundred years ago Borneo was nearly completely forested, it has rapidly lost forestland in recent decades. This film pieces together the inevitable results of deforestation the degradation of the landscape, the loss of animal habitat, the elongated dry seasons, and the unavoidable toll it is taking on the health and financial stability of the indigenous communities.
THE POACHER'S PIPELINE
Produced by Phil Rees, Jeremy Young & Kevin Hirten
Al Jazeera Media Network (Qatar)
The Poachers Pipeline doesnt just tell the story of rhino poaching. Instead this groundbreaking documentary reveals the global syndicates that fuel the illegal killing. Its a trail that leads beyond the criminals to a South African minister, diplomats and even the delegation of the Chinese Premier.
Stick around afterwards for a panel discussion and talkback with Denise and Marc Dragiewicz, and more!
