Educational Documentaries & Films

Through education, individuals gain the power to make informed decisions that benefit their health, the health of the environment we live in and the wellbeing of other sentient beings that we share the earth with. 

Tanglewood Foundation has supported a number of educational films in order to spread knowledge and awareness.

 

What the Health is the groundbreaking follow-up film from the creators of the award-winning documentary Cowspiracy. The film exposes the collusion and corruption in government and big business that is costing us trillions of healthcare dollars, and keeping us sick.

What The Health is a surprising, and at times hilarious, investigative documentary that will be an eye-opener for everyone concerned about our nation’s health and how big business influences it.

Available to view on Netflix.

This is an independently funded tell-all documentary feature film about the rhino poaching crisis in South Africa which the world desperately needs to see. What started out as a 6 months project continued to evolve into something much bigger 4 years later. Tanglewood Foundation is very proud to have supported Bonne and Susan on this journey both financially and emotionally.

Dominion

Dominion uses drones, hidden and handheld cameras to expose the dark underbelly of modern animal agriculture, questioning the morality and validity of humankind's dominion over the animal kingdom. While mainly focusing on animals used for food, it also explores other ways animals are exploited and abused by humans, including clothing, entertainment and research.  Tanglewood Foundation's financial support helped get the word out about this film.

Now available to view on Netflix.

Takeout_edited.jpg

Tanglewood Foundation teams up with Michal Siewierski of Diet Fiction and Food Choices to bring Takeout, an expose of Deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest and its link to meat consumption around the world. Michal goes deep into the Amazon region to see what is happening and find alternative ways of farming and land management. This is a pressing issue that we must tackle now if we wish to stop what is likely to be an environmental disaster of biblical proportions. Likely release for this film is July 2020.

Voiceless Crime of Silence.jpg

Voiceless: Crime of Silence is a ground-breaking new feature-length documentary delving into the fervently heated world of the rapidly growing animal rights movement, the now single biggest social justice movement of the century!
This film follows on from the wave of recent impactful documentaries such as Cowspiracy; What the Health, Food Inc, Forks Over Knives, Diet Fiction, Earthlings and Dominion. But it goes further, delving deeply and personally into the lives of animal rights activists around Australia and the rest of the world, painting rich portraits of their lives. These are fascinating and amazing people who dedicate their lives to regular protest and outreach activism, initiating ‘occupy protests’/ public interest exposés (which can involve breaking into farms, meat-processing facilities and slaughterhouses) and live-streaming it to the world. We focus on 4 key characters, following their activism journey, and how their stories develop over the best part of a year.
Highlighting the conflict between two opposing communities (and cultures), we also journey into outback rural Australia, where we meet staunchly passionate ‘old fashioned Aussie farmers’, explore their lives and what they do on a day-to-day basis in the animal agriculture industry. And we find out what life is like for people relying on animals as their product to make a hard-graft living. Many of these farmers’ families have been doing this for generations. It is often all they know.
Our aim is to paint a broader picture of this current time in civilisation, a time when an ever- expanding sector of humanity is pausing to reflect deeply on exactly what we are doing to fellow living species and, indeed, to our planet.

Sisters Of The Wilderness

Sisters of the Wilderness, is a new South African social impact feature documentary, directed by award-winning filmmaker, Karin Slater.

Set in the iMfolozi wilderness, South Africa, in the oldest game park in Africa, the iconic Hluhluwe-iMfolozi park, where the White Rhino was saved from extinction, Sisters of the Wilderness tells the story of five young Zulu women venturing into the wilderness for the first time on a journey of self-discovery, reminding them that we are all intimately linked to nature.


Tanglewood Foundation believes the sustainability of conservation starts with the local communities. Helping bring this group together and introducing them to the beauties of the iMfolozi/Hluhluewe reserve can have enduring benefits for wildlife.
