In the year 2000, on the island of Borneo, the Swiss activist Bruno Manser disappeared without a trace. Having lived for six years with the Penan people, the last nomads of the island, and sharing their struggles against logging companies, a reward for this head was offered by the Malaysian authorities since 1986. Today still, his fate remains a mystery.
Letter to Bruno Manser is a photographic letter that intends to address directly the missing man, a shepherd from the Swiss Alps who became a nomadic hunter in Borneo, to give him news of those who loved him and the territory for which he has with no doubt lost his life.
Letter to Bruno Manser: Isabelle Ricq and Christian Tochtermann
