"The Mutan tree, well we say tree, but originally it’s a liana that uses the tree to climb. And ist grasp ends up killing the tree." The Penan in Sarawak, one of the two Malaysian states on Borneo, lived not long ago as nomads and are now among the first to be affected by deforestation. The film is carried by the song of those who refuse to give in and captures the different ways of resistance in this deadly fight. A documentary thriller, BE'JAM BE et cela n’aura pas de fin., is a testament to modern forest guerrillas fighting bulldozers with blowpipes.
