SYNOPSIS

The Flying Gold of Arabuko is the literal and living story of the butterfly effect. It follows the practise of butterfly catchers and farmers in Kenya and how the unusual practice has become a saviour of the largest and last wild remnant of the East African Coastal Forest System. Told from the perspective of butterfly farmer and ex-poacher, Charo Ngumbao, the film questions whether something as small as a butterfly could potentially save an entire ecosystem and the many species within it living on the brink of extinction.
