First Images from the Film: Another Crude Oil

We're back in England now, and are reviewing our footage and working quickly to get the documentary together. Here are some of the first images we have reviewed since our return. Still frames from "Another Crude Oil":

Post-production for the film is now underway. We are entering our second round of fundraising and sponsorship negotiations. Please contact us if you would like to become a part of this effort by supporting our film, and making these images of suffering a thing of the past.

I know the truth about what is happening to the orang utans in Kalimantan, but to see the pictures is heartbreaking. Is your film ready yet and available on dvd. I am a volunteer for BOS-Holland and would like to get a copy to use for bringing the case of the orang utans to a wider public.
