Leuser: The Last Place on Earth

Director: Carter Kirilenko
Origin: Canada
Duration: 15 minutes

This film was part of the VIMFF 2021 which is now over. It is a selected film for the VIMFF 2021 World Tour.


This film shares the story of the most biodiverse ecosystem ever documented by science. In a true David vs. Goliath story, we join Goldman Environmental Award winner, Rudi Putra and his team of park rangers to learn what it takes to protect their home. The Leuser Ecosystem, on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia, is facing the looming threat of the expansion of large scale illegal palm oil.
