About Brave Age Films

 

Climate change and environmental issues are one of the greatest concerns faced by our planet in the 21st century and an increasing human population competes for space and natural resources, rapidly degrading pristine forest areas that support myriad life species. These forest in turn giving us life sustaining elements like clean air and groundwater. Land available on the planet is under further pressure, compounded by rising oceans, increasing desertification and deforestation. Brave Age Films looks into issues affecting our planet and furthering associations with committed individuals and organisations, and collabrating with film production companies working towards the betterment of the environment and society at large.

 

 

Bastion of the Giants- Feature Film 2015-16

Bastion of the Giants looks at the picturesque, unique and biodiverse wetland wildlife habitats of North Eastern India fed by the mighty river Brahmaputra and its tributaries and supporting a tremendous wealth of flora and fauna, among them the Asian Elephant; a flagship species that needs large areas to roam in thus ensuring protection of large forest areas, but also leading to man-animal conflicts as a large portion of the world’s exploding human population lives around these ancient elephant forests, rapidly converting these forests into crop plantation and other human use, thus forcing Elephants to enter human areas either seeking food or then crossing them as migratory corridors. Bastion of the Giants delves into the challenges of conserving these Elephant habitats, which are also havens for other endangered wildlife including the Indian Rhino and the Bengal Tiger amongst many others. All these remaining forests across the world are home to amazing wildlife, but are also generators and reservoirs for precious fresh water, refreshing underground water and hold together soil layers that have taken thousands of years to generate.
