Selections from the 2009 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival

GREEN (France, 2009, 49 min.)

Her name is Green and she is alone in a world that doesn’t belong to her. She is a female orangutan, victim of deforestation and resource exploitation. This film is an emotional journey through Green’s final days. It is a visual ride presenting the devastating impacts of logging and land clearing for palm oil plantations, the choking haze created by rainforest fires and the tragic end of rainforest biodiversity. We watch the effects of consumerism and are faced with our personal accountability in the loss of the world’s rainforest treasures. Directed by Patrick Rouxel. Winner of the Grand Teton Award.
