Leuser: The Last Place on Earth

This thrilling action-adventure documentary, currently in production, delves deep into the extraordinary Leuser Ecosystem — the last place on earth where orangutans, rhinos, tigers, and elephants still roam freely in the wild. An undercover film team chronicles the plights of the heroes fighting to save this biodiversity hotspot on the Island of Sumatra, Indonesia from rampant corruption and destruction — and through their journey, it becomes clear that the difference between life and death in this distant land lies in the decisions each of us makes every day.
