The Borneo Case (International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights)

Dylan Williams and Erik Pauser, Sweden/United Kingdom/Germany, 2016, 78’, ov Eng/Malais/Ger, Eng/Fr sub
Swiss Premiere

On May 25th, 2000, Swiss activist Bruno Manser disappeared into the thick jungle of Sarawak, Malaysia. With his friend Mutang, he undertook the fight against deforestation, "the biggest environmental crime of the century". Today, Mutang is in exile in Canada, where he continues to fight alongside activists to denounce the millions of dollars that are laundered with the help of major banks, such as UBS. This flawlessly directed film, recorded over the course of 25 years, pays a vibrant tribute to these tireless activists and their ongoing fight.

Direction Dylan Williams, Erik Pauser
