Based on the idea that sex can save the world, Berlin's Fuck For Forest raises money for their environmental cause by selling home-made erotic films on the internet. From the streets of Berlin to the depths of the Amazon, together they are on a planet-saving mission to buy a piece of forest and save the indigenous peoples from the sick, sick West.Written by
I'm having a hard time understanding the true goals of this group. They are aware of ecological breakdown, aware that pornography sells quite well. And yet somehow, as do so many starry eyed hippies, they have failed to see the hypocrisy of their efforts. What is the biggest threat to ecology? Humankind. Where are all these humans coming from? How are they created? Aiding ecology through selling porn is like selling bombs to stop warfare. I'm baffled and immensely amused. The documentary itself is poorly structured and backfires to such a staggering extent, that one (this reviewer) can clearly see the moral of this modern fable: Intentions are nothing without knowledge and wisdom. As to why the group went on to market the documentary could only be an attempt to make (back?) some money and probably console themselves. "we did good, right? didn't we...guys?" What's next? "Drown for Oceans", "Doping for Sobriety". In the end, I would recommend this documentary as an object lesson to any NGO, particularly small, distorted, egotistical ones. Two stars for educational (how not to raise funds, make a documentary) value.
