If Not Us Then Who’ communicates firsthand the unique personal stories of Indigenous Peoples, as they battle to protect their lives, their cultures and our forests. When stripped down protecting our planet is not only about politics and policies it’s about people taking ownership and taking action, no matter how small.

The films are a culmination of more than two years of participatory filming by Handcrafted Films. From Indonesia to Peru, we have been working with local partners to articulate individual stories through film.

Using the powerful visuals they are now organising a global roadshow in the lead up to COP21 in Paris. Our aim is to draw attention to the wider issue of deforestation, community-based solutions and ultimately to put pressure on governments and their commitment to slow climate change.
