English (subtitled), 52 min, 1999, India

Uttara Kannada in Karnataka is one of the most densely forested districts in India. Development projects in the district threaten to displace one out of every ten inhabitants. The film examines livelihood and survival issues of forest dependent communities against the backdrop of this destruction of a fragile and versatile ecosystem in the Western Ghats region, and State interventions towards Joint Forest Management, funded by multi-lateral aid agencies.
