This documentary concerns the social, environmental, and economic impacts of palm oil production in Indonesia, including the loss of over 2.8 million hectares of primary rainforest each year. That's
six football fields every minute!
A common ingredient in thousands of products, from anti-freeze to shampoo to potato chips, palm oil
comprises an integral part of Indonesia's economy. However, its impacts on local communities are little
known, and include conflicts over human rights, land rights, and environmental protection.
Informed by the work of local non-profit organizations, this film has been created to educate consumers around the world, to help them realize the effects of palm oil consumption, as well as how we can all be
part of a more sustainable solution.
