A Distant Thud In The Jungle
In the heart of Papua New Guinea, the Highlands which attract tourists in search of exoticism, has also attracted foreign oil companies. This is where tribes who are paid to dance gather every year and the place where a Huli family and their clan in their quest for modernity have agreed to sell their land to ExxonMobil. But the money never comes... Caught between rival tribes, greedy politicians and one of the world's most powerful multinationals, they realise their land is being stolen from under their feet. A world quietly disappears while only a few kilometres away tourists take snap shots of dances that have become meaningless.
