As a war rages on in the province of Bougainville in Papua New Guinea, a young girl becomes transfixed by the Charles Dickens novel Great Expectations, which is being read at school by the only white man in the village. In 1991, a war over a copper mine in the South Pacific tore the island of Bougainville apart.

But on an island at war, fiction can have dangerous consequences.

Cannibal Tours(1988)

1 Std. 12 Min. | Dokumentation
3,0/5 (bei 4 Stimmen)

The film follows a number of European and American ecotourists as they travel from village to village throughout the Sepik River area in Papua New Guinea, driving hard bargains for local handcrafted items, paying to view formerly sacred ceremonies and taking photographs of every aspect of "primitive" life. With some prodding, the tourists unwittingly reveal an unattractive and pervasive ethnocentrism to O'Rourke's cameras. The tourists thus become somewhat dehumanized by the camera, even as the tourists themselves are busy exoticizing even the most mundane aspects of Sepik River life.

Trobriand Cricket(1975)

53 Min. | Dokumentation
2,9/5 (bei 2 Stimmen)

An anthropological documentary about the people of the Trobriand Islands and their unique innovations to the game of cricket.

Impressionen unter Wasser(2002)

FSK: ab 0 Jahre
| 45 Min. | Dokumentation
3,3/5 (bei 3 Stimmen)

Der Film zeigt die mannigfaltige Tier- und Pflanzenwelt in den Tiefen der Ozeane, verzichtet aber auf jeden informierenden Kommentar. Wortlos fokussiert die Kamera dabei exotische Fische von obskurer Gestalt und zeigt gigantische, unberührte Korallenriffe, deren Existenz schon bald zu Ende sein könnte. In Form einer Collage verwendet der Film nur die farbenprächtigsten Bilder um ein bedrohtes Paradies unter Wasser darzustellen, das es zu retten gilt….
