Songs of Simbai

Film Details

“I made this film in Madang province, Papua New Guinea, telling the story of one of the many traditional singing groups who travelled to Madang Town to perform at the annual cultural festival. I documented their 4-day journey from their remote village in the mountains, as they travelled on foot, in dug-out canoes and by truck. Their dedication to overcome challenges to share their culture and make a living was truly inspiring.” These are the words of James Skinner, director of the 18min documentary we now present you here. One questions arises… How far would you walk for the good of your culture?
