Environmental Impact through Documentary Film

Hornbill uses its film, The Borneo Case, to inspire commitment to environmental and human rights issues. The destruction of the rainforest in Borneo is considered one of the biggest environmental disasters of our time. Aggressive deforestation, palm oil cultivation, and over production of dams and mines have had a huge impact on the rainforest since the 1960s. In many places the rainforest may be completely lost within a five-year period. Exploitation not only causes irreparable damage to flora and fauna, but also extensive violations of human rights. The project is based on a collaboration between the activists documented in the film The Borneo Case along with those involved with the Silent Approval report, which has tracked investments of Swedish banks that have been linked to the areas in which the film takes place.

Why we support this project
