The Forest Man of India
At the age of 17, Jadav Payeng started to grow trees on barren land. Many challenging years later a jungle of 1200 hectares has grown out of this idea. This is a story of passion and perseverance and how an individual can change the course of nature.
»THE FOREST MAN OF INDIA is about one individual and how his story can be an inspiration for all, since the answers to today’s dilemmas lie in the efforts of every individual and how these efforts can culminate into a change.«
»Is an individual really able to cause change? This film is for those, who are in doubt. The story about the afforestation of an entire jungle by Jadav Payeng is proof that everybody has the ability to change something. This is the message I want to pass on.«
