GREEN THE FILM


Her name is Green, she is alone in a world that doesn't belong to her. She is a female orang-utan, victim of deforestation and resource exploitation. This film is an emotional journey with Green's final days. It is a visual ride presenting the treasures of rainforest biodiversity and the devastating impacts of logging and land clearing for palm oil plantations.

Green is by far the greatest film ever made about orangutans, palm oil and deforestation. It was filmed in Borneo and Sumatra and on location at the BOS Nyaru Menteng Orangutan Rescue Center. Learn more about the rescue center. Please make a donation to support the hundreds of orangutans being cared for at the center.
