Description

The action is simple: watch a film, save a culture. #wafsac

As part of the Indigenous Education Foundation (IEF) international ‘Watch a Film, Save a Culture’ #wafsac campaign launching this October, BIJA will be supporting Rob Henry’s documentary film ‘As Worlds Divide’ by hosting a screening in the studio on 21st October.

In 2008, Australian surfer Rob Henry packed up his life in Melbourne and flew to the Mentawai Islands, Indonesia, in the hope of pursuing a more sustainable and fulfilling way of life. What he found instead were a people facing a threat far more pressing than his own.

9 years on Henry is returning to share the Mentawai people's story. As the remaining tribes-people battle for their culture and land there is still hope amongst a small group of tribal educators who are making a stand.

Doors open from 7pm - film starts 7:30pm sharp.

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.

By attending and learning about Mentawai's fascinating culture you'll actively be helping to save it - #WAFSAC
