We are very proud to report that “Reynaldo” the short film above, is a winner at the UN International Forest Short Film Festival. The film documents our hero (aka Reynaldo) who is behind the forestry conservation project which the Bloomtrigger project is supporting. It is a beautiful film with a powerful message that fully deserves to be recognised by the United Nations. Reynaldo works with the Crees Foundation who is responsible for coordinating the agroforestry project in Peru which is transforming the livelihoods of the local communities to help protect this regions unique biodiversity. The film was created by two talented British film makers Dan Childs and Nick Werber, who can be seen here receiving the award at the UN International Forest Short Film Festival. (FYI: You need to watch from 22m 41s to see them talk about Reynaldo!)
