Conservation politics writ large.. Who holds the money? Who loses land? What becomes of threatened animals like the Bengal Tiger when humans can’t even talk to each each other?
This film takes a long zoom from forest gardens of southern India to the corridors of power in the World Bank, Washington DC, along the way exposing some of the obstacles facing the multibillion dollar Global Environment Facility …
The aim of this film series is to collate interviews with people from around the world who have significant expertise in the understandings of beliefs in witchcraft, spirit possession and juju. WHRIN looks to interview academics, activists, faith leaders and community leaders on these issues.
With InsightShare I work to enable marginalized communities to make films themselves that express their needs and values on their own terms, ie not according to perspectives imposed by governments, companies, or indeed media consultants like me. With researchers at the University of East Anglia, as an InsightShare associate in 2014 we enabled Tanzanian farmers to make films about fairness in forests where conservation and markets are at work. This is one of the films produced in the Kilwa region.

Nakuru Lemiruni sends a message to those responsible for evicting the Samburu tribe from their land..
The Samburu of Kisargei, in Kenya’s Laikipia district, were brutally evicted from the lands they call home in 2010 after the land was sold to the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF). AWF, using funds from The Nature Conservancy (TNC), says it bought the land on the understanding that no-one lived there. When the Samburu protested and took the matter to the courts the land was hurriedly ‘gifted’ to the government.
Police chose a Friday “market day” for their attack, when the men were away and only women, elders, and children were in their homes. Fanning out across the 17,000- acre Eland Downs Ranch, police burned the Samburu families’ homes to the ground, along with all their possessions.
Identified in the Kenyan press as “squatters,” the evicted Samburu families petitioned a regional court to recognize their ancestral claims to the land where they lived and grazed their cattle The suit has been filed by the Samburu against the African Wildlife Foundation and the former President.They need money and public support to win.
