This heritage film about the last primary and tropical forests is a result of the collaboration between Francis Hallé, a botanist, and Luc Jacquet, a film producer. The film’s aim is to raise the next generation’s awareness of the wild virgin forests. At the current rate of deforestation, these forests will disappear in ten years. In order to maximize exposure and awareness, the film will also be accompanied by supplementary projects and events and publicize using new communication technologies.
