Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This documentary takes the viewer on a trip to the Borneo, with famed environmentalist Jacques Cousteau. Cousteau has spent a lifetime exploring undersea worlds and coastal regions, and the fragile ecosystems they contain. In this film, Borneo, the third largest island in the world, is the subject of Cousteau's camera crew. Borneo is located in the Malay Archipelago, southwest of the Philippine Islands. Borneo is a watery world of mangrove forests that are home to abundant and exotic flora and fauna. The thickets provide cover to the ancient people who live in their midst, and whose ways and very lives are currently threatened by logging companies. Cousteau presents, in his inimitable style, the incredible beauty of this remote island.
