This is our cool work
In the global battle between man and nature, who are the African voices straddling both sides of this conflict? From ground zero these custodians offer us hope, despite the odds, if we choose to listen.
Traversing 27 120 km and 10 countries, CO/EXIST is a feature documentary that showcases a diversity of voices shaping modern conservation across the African continent. Who are these people at the frontlines of conservation? What do they think and feel about the issues shaping their work, their families and their communities? Who are their role-models and what do they want from the future for their children? Through a series of intimate interviews, we hear in the characters own words about global concerns of climate change, biodiversity loss, human-wildlife conflict and population growth that are affecting their local natural resources. In so doing, we give voice to the resilience, innovation and dynamism of these people who are forging Africa’s future whilst looking after its unique wildlife and wildernesses.
