Life is One tells the story of three orphan sun bear cubs from Indonesia and their return to the wild, from the perspective of their foster parent who helped them grow to reach independence. Viewers are placed in total immersion with the bears of the rainforest and will delight in how beautiful, joyful and energetic they are. This documentary is a tribute to life on Earth; a reminder that all forms of life are inextricably connected and that we owe respect and compassion to those with whom we share the planet.

The screening will be preceded by the showing of Pangolin, a short film that gives us an intimate glimpse into the journey of a single pangolin; from the moment it is taken from the wild to its final destination in China. Filmed on location across three countries with the help of reformed poachers and wildlife enforcement officers, we see the life, death and afterlife of the most illegally trafficked mammal on the planet.
