Bougainville: “Our Island, Our Fight”
I received an email from Wayne who works for Ipso-Facto Productions, concerning the latest documentary produced by this international multi-award winning media production company.
Bougainville “Our Island, Our Fight” is a powerful documentary about an indigenous people taking up arms for Independence to protect their culture and stop the ecological devastation of their lands.
This multi-award winning documentary is one of the last wars for independence, it smuggles us into the world of this besieged people. Cut off from all humanitarian aid and invisible to Western media, their only resource is their resolve to fight for independence in an attempt to preserve their culture and environment.
This is the only documentary of the longest war in the South Pacific. A war which killed 20, 000 people just two hours from Australia.
