Short Film: DARK GREEN, 32min., Netherlands, Documentary

The solo expedition of adventurer Paul Rosolie into the Amazon Rainforest teaches him how to reconnect with the last remaining wilderness on earth.

In Dark Green we follow conservationist and storyteller Paul Rosolie deep into the jungle of the Amazon, risking his life to learn more on this last remaining wilderness on earth. Leaving a world of man-made destruction, where the Trans Amazon highway eats its monstrous way into the jungle, Paul contemplates on how to save this large ecosystem.

Rosolie describes his solo-expeditions as a “calibration of the concept of nature”: “At the very moment we start to lose species from an ecosystem, people will adapt to this new situation.” Rosolie needs to surrender himself to the untouched wilderness. Not only to recharge, but even more so to reconnect and bring back his love for the wild to the world.

The irony of this festival is that its goal is to not be around in 5 years time. To eventually not be relevant because there is zero need to have a festival geared for female talent and female stories because the stories presented in Hollywood and around the world are a balanced showcase of the human experience from both sexes. Our goal is to achieve a lot of success and then fold into oblivion simply because there is no need for this festival. This festival was created by the FEEDBACK Film & Writing Festival as a simple reaction to a strong need to showcase female talent from around the world in a more profound way. When putting together the weekly festival, the administration noticed a lack of a female presence in the stories being shown at the festival. A classic example and analogy to the frustration is how the festival noticed that even the smaller roles in a screenplay were written for a man to play. There was zero reason for this in many stories. How a police officer, or a political campaign manager, for example with 3-4 lines in a screenplay was a "HE" character. Why? And these are the screenplays written by the winners! The talented one who have obtained agents and have began/beginning their careers as a writer.
