Remembering Papua New Guinea
1 x 60'
The film celebrates Papua New Guinea's rich cultural and environmental tapestry through the reenacted stories and present challenges of a handful of indigenous tribes from the island nation. According to Sacred Ecology in the Pacific Islands, the 'ethnosphere’ and the biosphere are a single integrated whole. 'Remembering Papua New Guinea' aims to show that by offering a singular vision of the web of life that encompasses nature, wildlife, and people, both past and present, all across the country. This celebration of the island’s unique diversity of life is ultimately juxtaposed with an exposé, made by Global Witness and producer Alessio Bariviera, on environmental and human rights abuses fueled by an unsustainable demand for raw timber and agricultural commodities.
