Tong Tana, 1989

Tong Tana – journey into rainforest (En resa till borneos inre, 1989)

On Borneo, in the oldest rainforest in the world. A forest over 160 million years old, lives the penans. The last nomads of Borneo. Only a thousand of them left. Totally dependent on the forest. But fifty percent of the forest is already taken for timber. If nothing happens, the forest will be gone in ten years. The film is about the Penans and the swiss Bruno Manser who lived with them for six years. Its a film about the civilisation and the rainforest. it is about one of the largest ecologic catastrophies of our time.
