Silent Forests Trailer

Independent Feature Documentary - Director of Photography

WORLD PREMIERE: Santa Barbara International Film Festival

After a 2011 survey revealed that more than half the Central African forest elephant population has been lost to poaching in the last decade, there has been a concerted effort throughout the Congo Basin to save those that remain. SILENT FORESTS will explore this story through a range of dynamic subjects; including Cameroon’s first female eco-guard, a grassroots wildlife law enforcement group, a Congolese biologist studying elephant communication, and a team of anti-poaching sniffer dogs led by a Czech conservationist. SILENT FORESTS is a character-driven and cinematic look at the fight for the future of the forest elephant and other Congo Basin wildlife.
