AS WORLDS DIVIDE
87 min. 2017, AUSTRALIA (recorded in Indonesia and Australia)
Directed and shot by Rob Henry


Rob Henry decides to leave his job in Melbourne and go in search of a more
sustainable, fulfilling way of life. Arriving to the tropical Islands of Mentawai,
Indonesia, he finds himself living in a small coconut farming settlement.
Filmed over the course of eight years, the viewer is taken on an intimate
journey inside the lives of indigenous people who are losing connection with
their land and culture. Despite the devastating impact, there is hope to keep
on living traditionally and abundantly in the forest.

kultuuriga, mis hoolimata välismaailma hävitavast mõjujõust hinges püsib.
