"Survival of the Sun Bears", produced and directed by Jocelyn Stokes. World Premiere at the 2019 WCFF.
When an orphaned sun bear cub is rescued from illegal captivity she must learn how to survive in the wild before she can finally be set free. Filmed on the island of Borneo, in a rainforest older than the Amazon, this short documentary follows the journey of a rescued sun bear called Natalie
Conservation is brought to life as we experience the journey of rehabilitation and release. This film leads us to realize that just as we need the rainforests, these rainforests need sun bears; so what threatens sun bears also threatens us.
As we examine our own life choices in regard to consumerism and career paths, we discover we all have a role to play in reducing these threats and keeping sun bears alive, wild and free.
The WCFF mission is to inform, engage and inspire wildlife conservation through the power of film.
