GHOSTS OF OUR FOREST

Loud Roar Productions (63min) 

In 1992, as pressure from international conservation groups to protect the great forests of Uganda mounted, the indigenous Batwa tribe was forcefully removed from their ancestral home by the Ugandan government. One of the most ecologically diverse places on earth, the Bwindi impenetrable forest nurtured the Batwa, and in turn the tribe worshipped all that it gave them. Upon eviction, however, the Batwa received nothing in the way of compensation or support, and so fell into poverty.

 

The payment for screening rights goes directly to the Batwa community in Kisoro.

 

All welcome!

Daniela and the ALTAR team
