About me, about Green

My name is Patrick, I am an ordinary citizen trying to help protect the rainforest and all the life it holds. I do so by making films on the forest and the industries destroying it.

After “Tears of Wood”, “Losing Tomorrow” and “The Cathedral Forest”, this is “Green”. Then came “Alma” and now I am editing my next film on sun bears. On the side I’m now also making a an enclosure for 3 sun bears I have become friends with.


“Green” is about the rainforest of Indonesia. It is 48 min long, it is available for free download and copyright free for all non commercial screenings. The film has no narration, it is thus accessible to all nationalities. It was produced independently and free of all commercial or political attachment. Please don’t hesitate to screen the film wherever you feel appropriate.

To purchase a DVD: please contact Green Planet Films in San Francisco or make a donation of 10 or 15 Euros using the pay-pal donate button on the front page of this site. Don’t forget to mention your address and I’ll send you a DVD by the post from Paris France. If you wish to buy large quantities please write me at: patrick@greenthefilm.com

To help save the Indonesian rainforest, we must choose to change our consumer habits so as to not be part of the destruction. If we are enough to do so, we can make a significant impact on the industries behind the destruction and make them change. All it takes is avoiding palm oil, tropicals hardwoods and paper from tropical countries.

We must show the way…

My latest film ALMA, on the Amazon, is also available for free download and copyright free for all screenings.
