Conservation films currently in production

AEFF’s major new project, currently underway, is a series of half-hour films, under the heading “Inspiration”. Each film focuses on a particular individual (or small organization) who is doing something positive for conservation and the environment, with a view to improving their community’s quality of life, and preserving biodiversity. These people/organizations are presented as role models, and will illustrate that even a single person or a small local project can have an impact and make a real difference.

As a whole, the series will cover a broad range of environmental and conservation issues, and show ways of dealing with them, from the rural village level to government level. For example, the people featured may range from a rural villager who is planting trees or looking after the coral reefs in his area, to the Director of the Kenya Wildlife Service who is operating at a policy level.

In addition, AEFF is in the process of re-narrating some existing films into new languages. These are “Tiva: A River of Sand” and “The Rains Came”. The former tells the story of one of the longest droughts ever in Kenya’s Tsavo National Park, where no rain fell for four years, apparently devastating the landscape. The film shows how the wild animals were able to survive, against incredible odds. “The Rains Came” illustrates the miraculous way in which nature bounced back when the rains did eventually fall, and Tsavo was transformed almost overnight for a desert into a lush green and productive habitat.

Finally, a new film edited entirely from existing AEFF library material, is entitled “Cats and Dogs”: a fascinating insight into the lives of predators in the Ruaha National Park in Tanzania, specifically Lions and Wild Dogs.
