This is a collaborative story of the civil war and ongoing struggle for sovereignty in Bougainville Island in the face of an all-too-familiar pattern of colonial rule and corporate mining interests. In turns poetic and dramatic, the film gives voice to an indigenous revolution on the verge of political independence from Papua New Guinea that is also still coping with the legacies of colonial trauma and environmental devastation.
Competing for the RAI Film Prize and Basil Wright Film Prize.
