PAPUA NEW GUINEA DOCUMENTARY

 

World class documentary, Wantok Meri, focuses on the lives of the women of Papua New Guinea and has been selected for the ABC Australia network.

The documentary follows the stories of seven women in the lead up to the 2017 election, which they hope will prove a pivotal point for their nation, currently entrenched in a patriarchal society.

“When we come out of the house, when we come to work. We are the strongest women, we can do our work, we can stand and make decisions at the place of work.”

Betelnutsellers Simbu

The films’ stars come from a variety of callings; Entrepreneurs, Tourism professionals, Teacher’s, and Police Officers. These women whole-heartedly speak of their early struggles, the turning points they have reached and their current motivation to improve the lives of their families.

Paupa New Guinea is different, the clash of cultures is stark and dramatic. It’s common to see woman selling produce on the side of the road, next to the latest mobile phone cards. What impact will the technology have? According to some; no one is spending time learning the traditional ways, they are all on facebook!
