We are now in the exciting lead up to the second Good Natured: A Conservation Optimism Short Film Festival! As we are now accepting submissions, we decided to have a catch up with the finalists and winners of the first edition.
Our second Q&A of this interview series is with Eilidh Munro, who was the finalist in the People & Nature category last year with Second Chances. The film follows the journey of a ‘colonist’, called Juvenal Huari Castilla, who travelled to Manu as a young man to make a living as a logger. It’s a beautifully nuanced story of growth and change that proves that people can change and reverse the damaging impact that they are having on the planet.
