An Orangutan Named Green Dies of a Broken Heart

March 22, 2012 at 5:30 PM Leave a comment

I’ve been reading about this 47 minute documentary for several days now.  It’s about deforestation in Indonesia as experienced by an orangutan named Green whose world — the forest she lives in — is entirely destroyed.  In the end she dies.

I haven’t been able to watch it yet but I will eventually. I feel a moral obligation to do so insofar as I’m a human being and human beings are responsible for what’s happening there.

There is no narration.  As a matter of fact, no words are spoken at all.

I thought I’d post it FYI.  I’ll post again after I’ve had the strength to watch it.
