I AM CHUT WUTTY
In one of the last remaining wildernesses in South East Asia, Cambodian communities struggle to defend their forests. Rubber companies illegally cut down resin trees that the local population depends on, arguing the rubber industry is good for the area, providing jobs and development. In April 2012, environmentalist Chut Wutty was stopped and shot dead at an illegal, military-controlled site in the Cardamom mountains. I am Chut Wutty exposes the fierce battle against illegal logging.
This film is dedicated to friend and activist Chut Wutty, who was shot and killed on 26th April 2012 by military police. Wutty spent his life battling to defend Cambodia’s forests against corrupt and illegal exploitation.
