SCREENING: AIYA WA Documentary Screening: As Worlds Divide
Join Australia Indonesia Youth Association / AIYA WA for a special public screening of As Worlds Divide. 100% of funds raised via the #wafsac screenings will be used to implement the Mentawai community’s indigenous education program over the next 10 years, enabling them to preserve their precious culture. The Mentawai Islands are located off the Western coast of Sumatra, Indonesia.
Synopsis: After the collapse of the global economy in 2008, Australian Rob Henry decides to leave his job in Melbourne and go in search of a more sustainable 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, As Worlds Divide takes us on an intimate journey inside the lives of an indigenous people who are losing connection with their land and culture. The impacts are devastating, but for the Mentawai there is hope amidst a small community of tribes-people still living traditionally and abundantly in the forest.
By attending and learning about Mentawai's fascinating culture you'll actively be helping to save it.
