Forest Man: A Documentary that Beautifully Sums Up Humanity

Beautifully shot and artfully narrated, this short (it’s only 16 minutes) documentary showcases a man named Jadav Payeng.

Since the 1970’s Payeng has been planting trees in order to save Majuli island, the largest river island in the world. Now, he has single handedly planted a forest larger than Central Park NYC.

His story is both riveting and simple at the same time. His thoughts on humanity and his restoration plan is incredibly insightful. A 16 minutes well spent.
