Take One Action Film Festival The Borneo Case
Sat 16 September 2017
The Borneo Case
Ever wondered what links environmental destruction, land grabs, global finance, UK policy and political corruption in the global South?
In what should be essential viewing for anyone who uses a bank, buys property or invests in the stock market, this gripping and often shocking film follows an unlikely group of activists (a tribesman, a historian, an investigative journalist and a flamboyant DJ), who overcome death threats and intimidation to expose both the global forces and local corruption behind one of the greatest environmental crimes of our times.
Blending stunning shots of Malaysian Borneo’s rainforest with meticulously edited archive footage, this impassioned documentary leaves few stones unturned. The breadth of its investigation is testament to the energy and dedication of the campaigners determined to bring this story to light.
Presented in association with NUJ and Global Bersih.
The film is in English, German and Malaysian with English subtitles. Dir. Dylan Williams, Erik Pauser, 78min Sweden/United-Kingdom/ Denmark, 2016. UK premiere
