DVD - 2007
Rate this:
"Follows the efforts made by the men and women of Flores Island in Indonesia to reinvent their daily lives after 32 years in dictatorship. Amongst them we find a Canadian, Gilles Raymond, in search of a code of ethics where action coincides with words. Through the simple quest for clean running water, Catholics and Muslims work together to introduce a direct democracy and sustainable autonomy. This is a road movie of sorts, [with] the ancient Ngada warrior culture serving as a backdrop, where solidarity rubs shoulders with defeatism, and generosity overcomes corruption" -- Container
