Saving his Home, One Tree at a Time
26 June 2019 | by estreeter-02076See all my reviews

" Forest Man" is a short documentary about one man's efforts to save his home from environmental destruction. In the last 100 years Jadav Peyang's home, Mujuli island, located in the Brahmaputra River India, has lost over 60% of its land to erosion and Jadav has dedicated his life to saving it. The producers have used a range of filmic conventions to show the beauty of the island and the contrast between the wide, open area and the busy city nearby. They have used longs shots to show the vastness of Majuli island's wasteland, the use of placing people off centre, creates salience, and the idea that we are nothing compared to nature and its forces. Overall, I enjoyed this brief documentary, the dedication of Jadav to save his and his family's home humbled me, and inspired me to think more about the environment and what I can do to prevent things like this happening to us. "Forest Man" is definitely worth the 16 minutes it takes to view this documentary. I would give it 8/10 stars.
