Hi all FuckForForest lovers !
Finally the movie documentary about FuckForForest is coming out. Some places it already been showed on cinema and in other places it is still an upcoming adventure.
The first thing that you should know about this movie is that it is a movie based on reality. Made from two outsiders and not from any members of the FuckForForest community. It is there version of our version of FuckForForest. We gave them total freedom of expression to make this movie as they wished. We where also curios on how an outsider would see fuckForForest and angle the story.
To invite this two freaks, lets call them Camera guy and Sound guy into the life of FuckForForest could help the project but also make it more complicated. FuckForForest is still working with a sensitive subject and having two more people around with a big camera and a big fluffy microphone could easy scare of a shy new FFF lover. The FuckForForest base should be a safe place for people to go over there borders and try new stuff experimenting with body and sexuality. So to bring this two freaks into the life of FFF was not that easy. There eager and time schedule did not make things easier for us. Thanks to all the sweet sexy FuckForForest lovers that dared to join our adventures even if we had 4 extra eyes focused on what was going on. WE LOVE YOU !
Sadly I do think Michal Marzak "Camera guy" and FuckForForest had very different motives behind participating in the movie. FFF is a group of people who really follow what they believe in. We are real. While Michal Marzak wished to make a product. He wished a story and did too many own choices on how he wished to tell his story. He is quite manipulative and is just after getting what he had already planed in his mind. Well, we do believe in the freedom of expression and he should be allowed to show the sides he wished to angel. Sadly he was responsible for putting us in situations we never would have ended up in if we did not trust him and his production team. I do not think Michal Marzak was honest in his communication with us or his intention behind what he wished to produce. FFF is a group of idealistic expressionists, Michal Marzak is a money and fame loving movie maker.
We have not been able to see the final version of the movie jet but what I could see from before is that a lot of the deeper philosophy is missing and some basic facts about FuckForForest. So for you who watched the move... This is a link to FuckForForest history If you like to know more about the philosophy you can find it on the right side under "war on error" and "love manifest" and the info about the projects. Take your time !
Then if you feel inspired please become part of the project!
The reason way there is a lot of stuff missing in this movie is not only be course of the film makers lack of understanding about FFF but also be course we had a lot of personal problem in this period. A complicated love story over borders morale and an evil society trying to bring your dreams and hope down. If we would have paused the making of the movie we would maybe by now have been able to present another story.
There is also some things in this movie staged by dear Camera guy and Sound guy... realty is not always fitting into a time schedule, so some times you have to take things in your own hands... Well that is what happened when we arrived to Brazil and we did not know exactly what direction we wanted to go.
The conversation on the internet with the NGO from Iquitos was all a setup. Michal Marzak pretended that there was a NGO that wished to talk with us, then tricked us to believe the meeting on internet was real, then later put a new voice over on the clip to fit their storyline.
For sure, we have worked with ecological groups and issues for 8 year. We do know a lot about the different problems you can face working with this, and specially being FuckForForest at the same time. We would never had visited this "tribe" if we would had done the research. We wish to work with native people who still have a part of their nature honouring couture intact. If you help this people, they will help to protect nature, because their basic philosophy and spirituality is nature connected. This people is who we need to learn from. They have the knowledge we need to transfer our destructive society into a earth honouring one, with social commitments also to our fellow human brothers and sisters. They have the knowledge about the plants and rituals that will help us to understand stronger that nature and we are one. Without consciousness, technology will continue to be a demon for humanity and existence.
It is very sad that Michal Marzak choose to focus on the people who already has confirmed to western ideas about progress and disrespect of nature, while there are still many native people willing to die for nature - and are doing that right now in many places of south and central america. There are big conflicts between the people who resists to give up their nature honouring coulture and the people already made afraid by the western society - forcing them to turn their backs at their couture - and themselves becoming part of the industry that destroys nature. This makes violent fights between native people who wish to protect their land and the people who sell of. This is just what the modern world wants and have always done. Make conflicts and wars between the tribes, to make them weaker. - then take over all the natural resources - while reprogramming the couture and old wisdom with empty religion and a school system built to make consuming slaves.
Michal Marzak sees this conflict how we maybe could see this when we started FuckForForest. We have become a lot wiser since then. The end of the movie just shows the filmmakers naivety and is not a real picture on how FuckForForest would have worked - if we were not so stupid (and naive) to trust some commercial filmmakers from Polen.
Well FuckForForest is more then this movie.. it is a choice of life for many of us inside FuckForForest not just something staged and made up... We do not do FuckForForest to provoke any one of you we do it be course we believe in it !
