Bruno Manser - Die Stimme des Regenwaldes

by Niklaus Hilber Gala Premieres

In search of an experience beyond the superficiality of modern civilisation, Bruno Manser travels to the jungles of Borneo in 1984 – and finds his fulfilment with the indigenous population of the Penan. It is an encounter that changes his life forever. Living in harmony with nature, Manser learns much more from the Penan than just how to survive in the rainforest. The future of the indigenous people, however, resides under a dark star, as excavators and chainsaws are drawing closer every day. Manser decides to lead the Penan in the fight against the wood lobby. Based on the true story of Swiss environmental activist Bruno Manser, director Niklaus Hilber tells the story of a driven person who was willing to put everything on the line in a film shot on location in Borneo.
