EXPLORER, filmmaker, and environmentalist Bruce Parry is to appear at Llangollen Fringe Festival.

Best known for his BBC series Tribe, which saw him living with indigenous peoples around the world, Parry continues to work tirelessly to teach people about globalisation and climate change.

More recently he switched from television to the big screen with his directorial debut, Tawai, A Voice From The Forest - his attempt to dive deeper into the heart of what he had learned on his many years travelling the world.

Llangollen Fringe Festival will be hosting a screening of Parry’s film, on Sunday, July 21 at the Town Hall, followed by an interview and Q&A.

Parry said: "Tawai was born when I met the Penan people of Borneo for the BBC TV series Tribe.

"Having spent many months of my youth leading science and conservation expeditions to the world's third largest island, Borneo, I found it hard to believe that any nomadic tribal people could still be living there, as the forests were all but gone.

"The team that researched all the tribal groups for the series had, for a long time, suggested that we visit the Penan, but I was not so sure, and it was not until the very last episode that we decided to go - and I’m so glad we did because the experience changed my life."

Bruce Parry at Llangollen Fringe Festival will take place on Sunday July 21 at Llangollen Town Hall, Castle Street. Tickets are on sale now, at £15.
