OCEAN: Freightened (short films: Wildlife Crime Unit, Frontier Borneo: Sharks and Turtles)
Most of the goods consumed in the West are manufactured in far-off lands and transported to their destination markets by ship. The cargo shipping industry is a key player in the world economy, forming the basis of our model of modern civilization; without it, it would be impossible to fulfill the ever-increasing demands of our societies. Yet, the functioning and regulations of this business remain largely obscure, and its hidden costs affect us all.
Freightened is an audacious investigation that reveals the answers to these tough questions: Who pulls the strings in this multi-billion dollar business? To what extent does the industry control our policy makers? How does it affect the environment above and below the water-line?
WILDLIFE CRIME UNIT (short film)
Take a look behind the scenes at Education for Nature - Vietnam's Wildlife Crime Unit. Since its establishment in 2005, the wildlife crime unit has documented over 11,000 wildlife crime cases and assisted in the confiscation or transfer of thousands of endangered animals that are internationally-important species.
FRONTIER BORNEO: Sharks and Turtles (short film)
Discovery Channel presents Frontier Borneo, a breathtaking, action-packed journey featuring the lives of remarkable men and women and unforgettable creatures on the third largest island on the planet. Dealing with home-made bombs in the oceans; exploring uncharted jungles; rescuing endangered animals and coming face to face with deadly creatures, it's all in a day's work for the colourful characters featured. This unique cast of local and international wildlife rangers, explorers, scientists and conservationists uncover some of the most spectacular landscapes to be found in Borneo, and gives us an unprecedented glimpse into the realities of this unique world.
