A folk film made the community of Okwa II  

This is a period piece telling a story of traditional West African ways of protecting the environment: conservation before the whiteman. This is the first film made on the project and the first film in the series. Okwa II is one of the three villages enclaved within Cross River National Park and thus a site of tension with conservation efforts.
