Assists Peoples Documentary on Raising Awareness
of Issues Faced by Inshore Fishermen
Peoples Documentary is a team of filmmakers who produce web films to highlight serious environmental issues that threaten the livelihood of Malaysians, especially the Orang Asli (Native Malaysians) community. Recently, they have touched on issues affecting inshore fishermen, including the destruction of mangrove forests, encroachment of trawlers and various sources of pollution that will eventually lead to a depleting stock of fish and threaten the sustainability resources of fish in the country.
Through its CSR initiative, FingerTec Worldwide has pledged its full support by contributing to the post-production of the documentaries that highlight these serious matters. This series of documentaries also contain extensive interviews with the fishermen as well as footage of initiatives that have been taken to solve these issues, such as mangrove replanting projects. With the release of these films, Peoples Documentary and FingerTec are hoping for the nation to be more aware of the environmental issues threatening the natural well-being of Malaysia.
Peoples Documentary has a YouTube channel where you can view the web films they have produced by clicking here.
