Facing Changes in African Forests| 12mins
Director: Members of the Baka Community | Producer: Conversations with the Earth & InsightShare
Focus Years: 2009 | Country: United Kingdom
Just three days of training and the local Baka team of women and men, youth and elders split into groups and developed various storyboards to depict important issues concerning their basic human rights. Climate change is a totally new label to most villagers, but seasonal changes were identified as a vital issue affecting the livelihoods and cultural heritage of the Baka forest dwellers. The women took the cameras to the forest spring to demonstrate their fishing techniques whilst the men went deep in the forest to harvest wild honey. On the way, medicinal trees were identified and illegal deforestation documented.
