This beautifully filmed documentary follws the Penan peoples plight as they are moved off the land by logging companies and are forced to watch as their jungle homes, rivers and way of life are ravaged and destroyed by the loggers

The second part of this revealing documentary takes us into the lives of the Penan people of Sarawac on the island of Borneo as they resist being displaced and savaged by Malasian backed logging companies intent on destroying the the Penans’ jungle homeland for the logs and timber. It is believed that Bruno Manser the main spoke sperson in the video was killed by the loggers or the Malasian Government to keep him from speaking out for he Penan

The third part of this moving video follows the Penan indigenous people of Sarawac as they fight against insurmountable odds to try and save their homeland from the logging companies. To stop information getting out the malasian Governmnet imposed a total media blackout on Sarawac and killed or forced outspoken dissidents to flee the country for their lives
