This audio-visual journey takes you to the secluded islands of Vanuatu. Through enchanted forests, along lonely beaches and into tiny villages. It patiently tells the story of people living ancient cultures. But nowadays life is changing.
Globalisation creeps further and further into the jungle and the conflict between western consumerism, religion and ancient traditions divides families and even whole villages.
A 40-minute experimental documentary which features ancient songs, water music and the preperation of the local drug Kava. Then it spirals off. Domestic Violence, the return to civilisation and finally spiritual journeys into the abstract await you.
Read many of the stories as a VOIIAGE hybrid. An 18-part webseries diving deep into island life. Here, stories, photographs and audio-visual dreams merge into a beautiful synthesis. Something new, something innovative.
