This is a film that every Western Australian should see. An emotional journey to the heart of the forests, meet people on the frontline and find how you can help save our forests for climate. Will we save our forests in time for them to save us?
Film Synopsis
WA’s south-west forests are part of one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet and are recognised for their ability to capture and store carbon.
They are vital to slowing run-away climate change, yet, instead of preserving them, we are cutting them down at an alarming rate for charcoal, firewood and wood chips.
Forests play a crucial role in the water cycle, but the streams that once bubbled through these ecological communities are drying up and the critical habitat they provide for endangered species is shrinking.
Cry of the Forests takes viewers to the heart of the forests to see first-hand the beauty of these towering ecosystems and the life they support.
We meet the activists armed with GoPro’s and dressed in camouflage gear who have risked their lives to bear witness and capture the devastation occurring in our forests. We will also meet traditional custodians, tourist operators & farmers on the frontline of the battle to protect our forests.
This film seeks to change perceptions about native forests and their true value. https://documentaryaustralia.com.au/project/cry-of-the-forests/
