    A fascinating, thought-provoking documentary, F*ck for Forest is a candid portrait of a unique form of modern environmental activism where sexual liberation merges with global altruism. This critically acclaimed film follows several members of the eponymous organization as they raise money for struggling indigenous tribes in the Amazon by distributing home-made erotic films on the internet.

    Fuck for Forest is an NGO with a website that charges $15 a month for access to homemade amateur video and still photography - ranging from soft-core snapshots to hard-core pornography. To this day, the environmental group has raised and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to struggling tribal cultures in the Amazon rainforest. F*ck for Forest follows four core members through the streets of Berlin as they seek active members and present intimate performances, "eco-porn," which are then filmed for distribution on their website. The group then embarks on a trip to Peru to offer an endangered community the financial fruits of the organization's activities. With great reservations, the tribe meets the activists.

    F*ck for Forest is a smart, startling documentary about modern environmental activism, sexual liberation, indigenous rights and one of the world's most singular charities.
