Forbidden Forest

Forbidden Forest

| 1 h 9 min

This feature-length documentary tells the story of two very different men brought together by New Brunswick's decision to hand the management of millions of acres of Crown land to six multinationals. One man is an Acadian woodlot owner retired after nearly 40 years in a pulp mill; the other is a painter and winemaker with homes in France and New Brunswick.

The activitists travel to Finland, home of UPM-Kymmene, one of the largest licence holders of New Brunswick Crown lands, to urge company officials to practise responsible forestry. They also go head-to-head with the provincial government to secure a new community-based forestry policy that is environmentally sustainable and produces more jobs than the highly mechanized techniques used today.

    @doright - Not that I'm aware of! I asked our collection curator and he said the same thing. Sorry!

    A culture is only as good as its woods.

    Thank you Jean Guy, Francais and Kevin very informative documentary. It is alarming to see such devastation in our New Brunswick forests and what is happening to our proud hard workers in New Brunswick. I didn't really know how bad the situation really was. It's alarming. I admire your commitment in trying to make changes for our province. Thank you!
