West Papua: International Indigenous Film Festival in California

April 5, 2016

Exciting news! One of my short documentary films.

West Papua: A Hidden Genocide was selected for the Garifuna International Indigenous Film Festival in California, US. The festival runs from 26th – 30th May, 2016.


Direction: Sam Gollob & Josh Leong
Cinematography: Josh Leong
Edit: Josh Leong

Encounter the struggle, suffering, and injustice in West Papua through the eyes of Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Herman Wainggai – a formal political prisoner and escapee living in exile. His visceral and emotional experiences convey the brutal realities of the hidden genocide currently taking place in West Papua. Recalling his early childhood, his prison time, and his dramatic escape from the West Papuan border, relive the journey Herman has taken to freedom. Filled with faith, determination, tragedy, and resilience, Herman’s eye-opening narrative reveals to the world a genocide masked by deception, and silenced by oppression.

Thank you for your support!
