A Film on Pygmies from Bwindi

Documentary –

* FOG OF BWINDI

Uganda, 2015, Dir. Anna Bohlmark, 25 minutes, Documentary, English with English subtitles, Rated: G

For thousands of years the Batwa (a pygmy tribe) lived in harmony with the mountain gorillas in the Bwindi forest, south Western part of Uganda. In 1991, when the Bwindi forest became a world heritage, the pygmies were forcefully evacuated from the forest to leave space for the endangered gorillas. The mountain gorillas have become one of Africa´s biggest tourist attractions. But what happened to the Batwas?

This documentary give a frightening insight in a society that places economic interests above all others including human dignity.
