    • Synopsis
    • In the Swedish documentary, The Borneo Case documentary filmmakers Erik Pauser and
      Dylan Williams spend five years intimately following the trail of an unlikely group of activists whose aim is to investigate how profits from the illegal logging that has annihilated more than 90% of the Malaysian Borneo Rainforest have been money laundered into property portfolios all around the world. The group, made up of an exiled tribesman, a historian, an investigative journalist and a flamboyant DJ overcome death threats and intimidation in their efforts to unravel on what has been dubbed “the Greatest Environmental Crime in History” (ex British Prime Minister Gordon Brown). One of the weapons of the group is to start Radio Free Sarawak – a pirate radio station. Suddenly in a country were the government keeps a tight control of media, people get news and for the first time get
      information on what’s going on.
