Vimeo – Short Documentary
A film by Jeff Wirth
This inspiring short takes you on a journey as a young woman tries to save the forest, risking it all for the place she loves the most. Although she struggles, she comes out a legend.
Take action and join Miranda’s fight: globalvoicesforworldheritage.org
Editor’s Note: Miranda holds the world record for longest tree-sit – over 440 days. Why?
She finally had to descend when intentional brushfires were set in her direction, destroying many of the trees in the process.
Did you know that the Australian government declared conservation protection – and then did nothing to actually stop development destruction. Activists had fought for decades to preserve the land and when the government speaks up, everyone thinks – Victory! But that’s not what actually happens…
Miranda is a passionate, endearing girl in an endearing short about what tree-sitters actually go through and why they do what they do. And what would happen if they don’t. It’s about persistence, love and vigilance – the tireless fight never stop because ravaging corporate interests in tandem with government actions never do.
