About The Borneo Case:
"The film intimately follows a group of activists who investigate how profits from the illegal logging that has annihilated more than 90% of the Malaysian Borneo Rainforest have been money laundered to 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 where the government keeps a tight control of media, people get news and for the first time get information on what’s going on.
As a result of the investigation launched by the characters in the film over 600 000 people took to the streets of Kuala Lumpur in protest at high-level corruption, whilst the Borneo state leader Abdul Taib Mahmud unexpectedly announced his resignation after 33 years in power."
