Patrick Rouxel Filmmaker for environmental conservation


Alma is an insight into the Amazon forest and the industries destroying it. The film is a poetical ride on beauty of the Brazilian rainforest and the suffering that accompanies its destruction. Alma is a reflection on the value of life. It reveals what lies behind products such as meat, leather, dairy foods and exotic hardwood. The film invites us to question our consumer habits, to open our eyes and hearts, and allow room for empathy.
