The documentary film looks at the charcoal trade and the sustainable use of timber and the ongoing demands for resources by a growing regional population.
This is a short letter from Rupert Mcgowan the director of the Royal Geographical Society in Hong Kong
where in November 2014 the World premiere of Pembe Ya Ndovu was held.
Thank you very much for premiering your excellent film here. It was a truly an honor, which was much appreciated by all attendees.
You presented a unique combination of real analytical documentary film making, while keeping the attention of the audience with an exciting presentation, which made it a very special event for the Members.
The number plus the quality of the questions, showed the level of interest.
The eloquent introduction by Dr Jane, which set the scene for the unique environment of East Africa, was very important for focussing the audience. They then focussed on the issues so starkly portrayed in your film. You did a really good job of the Q&A, which several people have commented on, plus it was a great idea to have Laurel with you to add local details.
It was great to get to know you better. I do hope that we are able to liaise with you for future projects.
