The Man Village
3 years ago

THE MAN VILLAGE is an intimate and engaging feature documentary about the rural poor of central India and how, as tigers and big cats spill out of the nature reserves in search of adequate territory, they are coping with this daily danger. The prospect of losing the Tiger makes us very uncomfortable. It generates a feeling that biodiversity will slump into irreversible decline. There are many stakeholders - governments, environmentalists and documentary audiences. In the background are the rural poor of India. Our film is the story of the tension building between a human community’s basic needs for a safe environment to live and work and the policies aimed at protecting wildlife in this part of the world. But it is not a film that tries to prescribe opinion or answers to this subject. We merely wish to give these people a voice and let the audience appreciate their perspective. Clayhouse Productions Ltd (www.clayhouse.co.uk) is a small independent film production company that has won several awards and acclaim for drama, documentary and cinematography. We are filmmakers dedicated to the use of film to connect people from different parts of the world. Our aim is to shed light on important untold stories through character based documentaries. So far we have used and exhausted our own funds for this project and therefore suspended production. Our regular contacts at the village in India inform us that the cats still actively attack their cattle and pose the same threat to their lives. They live with this fear and want their story to be heard. As a last resort we have turned to crowd funding hoping to raise funds to complete this documentary.
