The Flying Gold of Arabuko

Director, Producer & Cinematographer : John Davies Composer: Madison Willing Sound Designer: Markus Andreas Colourist : Francis Qureshi ACs: Jake Davison, Daniel Stuart


The Flying Gold of Arabuko is the literal and living story of ‘the butterfly effect’. It follows the practise of butterfly catchers and famers in Kenya and how it has become an unlikely saviour of the last and largest indigenous forest of the East African Coast. It is told through the perspective of an ex-illegal logger and poacher, Charo Ngumbao. Like many others in the area, he has left his past exploitative livelihood behind and discovered the benefits of forest conservation through sustainably farming butterflies to supply tropical butterfly houses around the world.
