The Mulu Landgrab

A Film by the Bruno Manser Fonds
2019 | 11 min | Recommended min. age: 14 y

More and more tropical rainforests are being destroyed for palm oil plantations. In the Malaysian part of Borneo, deforestation has reached the immediate vicinity of the Mulu National Park, a UNESCO Word Heritage Site.

The film “The Mulu Land Grab” shows the resistance of indigenous Penan and Berawan/Tering communities against the destruction of their forests and the struggle for their land rights. It also shows the palm oil industry’s dodgy connections to international lenders and public officials.
