Paradise War

2019 | 142 min | Recommended min. age: 12 y

The true story of the environmental activist Bruno Manser with Sven Schelker (The Circle), who fights with the natives of Borneo against the deforestation of the jungle.

In search of an experience beyond the superficiality of modern civilization, Bruno Manser travels to the jungle of Borneo in 1984 – and finds his fulfilment in the nomadic tribe of the Penan.

It is an encounter that changes his life forever. From now on, Manser will stand up for the people threatened by deforestation: his courage as well as his tireless commitment and will to change make Manser one of the most famous and credible environmental activists of his time – and ultimately cost him everything.
