Explorer and filmmaker Bruce Parry will be visiting the Eden Project on February 20 for a special Rainforest Biome screening of his new film Tawai – A voice from the forest.

Tawai is the word the nomadic hunter gatherers of Borneo use to describe their inner feeling of connection to nature.

In this dreamy, philosophical and sociological look at life, Bruce Parry travels the world to learn from people living lives very different to our own.

From the jungles of Malaysia to the tributaries of the Amazon, Tawai is a quest for reconnection, providing a powerful voice from the heart of the forest itself.

The evening will start with a tour of the Rainforest Biome, including the opportunity to meet Bruce himself, before a screening of the film in the Malaysian area of the Biome. After the film, Bruce will take a question and answer session.

A ticket to the screening gives access to Eden during the day and also includes canapes, made with plants from rainforest regions. There will also be a cash bar on available.

Rose Cashman-Pugsley, Eden’s membership manager, said: “We are big fans of Bruce Parry at the Eden Project and we’re very excited to offer this unique opportunity to watch his new film in the lush surroundings of the Rainforest Biome.”

Bruce is an ex-Royal Marine who has spent his entire life exploring the Earth and immersing himself in forest communities. His adventures were made famous in the acclaimed BBC series Tribe.

Tickets to the showing in the Rainforest Biome on February 20 cost £30. The tour starts at 6pm and the film begins at 7.30pm. There is a showing in the Gallery on February 19 which is already sold out. For more information or to book, see www.edenproject.com.
