(2021) – 54 minutes long English, Indonesian and Bahao speaking documentary film
Distributed on Arte/ZDF – 03.08.21
What does the world’s most watched mega-event and a remote indigenous community have in common?
What connects a remote, indigenous community on Borneo with the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo? The film “UPROOTED” explores this question. It captures the beauty of the tropical jungle as well as the millennia-old relationship of the indigenous Dayak people with their forest and finds connections between supply chains, certification labels and sustainability promises in a globalised world. A film about a breathtakingly beautiful landscape in transition
