Patrick Rouxel Filmmaker for environmental conservation

Dear Mr President

This short film was shot during the screenings of “Losing Tomorrow” in villages and schools in East Sumatra during a 4 weeks road-show in September 2005. The film shows the reactions of the audience during the screenings and the discussions that followed. The purpose was to address the issue of environmental protection at a grassroots level in places where the rainforest is disappearing daily. This event was made possible thanks to the Great Apes Film Initiative (GAFI) with the help of the Sumatran Orangutan Society (SOS), and the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP).
