India Man Plants Forest Bigger Than Central Park to Save His Island (1979) - A documentary about a man who has single handedly turned an eroding desert into a wondrous oasis.

India Man Plants Forest Bigger Than Central Park to Save His Island! Since 1979, Jadav Payeng has been planting hundreds of trees on an Indian island threatened by erosion. In this film, photographer Jitu Kalita traverses Payeng's home-the largest river island in the world-and reveals the touching story of how this modern-day Johnny Appleseed turned an eroding desert into a wondrous oasis. Funded in part by Kickstarter, "Forest Man" was directed by William Douglas McMaster and won Best Documentary for the American Pavilion Emerging Filmmaker Showcase at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014.
