© Papous, entre 2 mondes
Year of production : 2012
Format : Feature

Traditional society and the everyday life of Papuans are disrupted in Papua New Guinea, confronted by big mining companies such as those exploiting gold. How can this be opposed? Can the strength of traditions be preserved, like Benett who chose initiation and scarification?  Can this choice help in the modern world?
