Law of the Jungle

Zákon džungle

Law of the Jungle features portraits of Wanze Eduards & Hugo Jabini. The pair successfully organized their communities against destructive Chinese logging operations on traditional Saramaka lands in Suriname’s rain forests. Their actions led to a landmark ruling in the Inter-American court, allowing all indigenous and tribal peoples in the Americas to control resource extraction in their territories. Narrated by Robert Redford.
