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. This film, produced by Patrick Rouxell, is an emotional journey with Green final days. It is a visual ride presenting the treasures of rainforest biodiversity and the devastating impacts of logging and clearing for oil palm plantations. Strong and poetic images from a forgotten tragedy.

"I could not stop watching this film. It's based on a simple idea really: to see ecological degradation through the eyes of one single animal, an animal so human in its appearance that you soon forget that Green is an Orangutan but rather a tragic victim of our actions. It's an extraordinary film, rendered with masterly skill and packing a powerful emotional punch. Without a single word spoken throughout, the film creates a searing indictment of how we use this earth with no regards for the silent neighbours we share it with. Please watch it."

"This is a truly original and innovative program that came as a complete surprise. It's such an important subject in the world today and to communicate across all cultures that concern without words but through pictures and a very beautiful sound track makes this a very important film.It's my favourite program for this year " Congratulations" Dione Gilmour
