Tribu Korowai, Kolufo, Papúa Nueva Guinea. Human Planet.

La etnia Korowai, también conocida como Kolufo, es una tribu del sureste de Papúa Nueva Guinea. Se trata de una de las pocas tribus de las que se cree que posiblemente practiquen el canibalismo.

Se compone por unos 3.000 miembros. Hasta la década de 1970 desconocían la existencia de cualquier pueblo que estuviera fuera de su entorno, aparte de las tribus vecinas.

Conviven en grupos formados por 10 ó 12 individuos. Construyen sus casas en las copas de los árboles en medio de la selva.

Lake Sentani Festival, West Papua

This is now an annual festival, held on shore of Lake Sentani in West Papua. It would have to be one of the most amazing spectacles around. Dan Schist and I flew over in 2008 to shoot the first one and apparently we were the first crew let into the country for many years, allowed to film. This is a brief snapshot of some of the things that happened. Its happening this weekend again, June 19 2010. Wish I was there. Hopefully next year.

The Kamoro, the trailer

The Kamoro, some 18,000 people speaking the same language, live along the south coast of New Guinea, the worlds largest tropical island, located just north of Australia, across the shallow Arafura Sea. (The complete documentary can be see at Vimeo.com)

The Kamoro still follow a semi-nomadic existence, one of the few surviving hunter-gatherer groups in the world. Hunting forays still take place, but fishing is far more important. Indeed, the survival of the Kamoro depends on fishing, along with the sago, their starch staple. Fish and sago are the main Kamoro staples providing protein and starch.

The film follows the traditional Kamoro, who's life-style fits perfectly with the bountiful resources that nature provides for them, such as fishing, collecting shellfish, hunting for monitor lizards, gathering the slimy tambelo, and sago production among lots more.

The Chief Who Talks with God - the Mee, West Papua


The Bunani Mee people live in West Papua, the Indonesian part of the island of New Guinea. They live a traditional life style and keep out those who have embraced the modern world of their Indonesian rulers. They call it living "Inside the fence". The Bunani Mee live inside this fence, isolated from the outside world. Itapi recently took over the leadership of this group, and wants to make it clear that he was told to be chief by God.

Members of the cast and crew from The Jungle Woman (1926) stroll through a small village in Merauke with some of the locals cast as extras in the film. A man hands an object to a villager and then Frank Hurley speaks to another local. A Papuan man with long braided hair turns for the camera. An intertitle, types of natives, precedes individual Papuan villagers filmed from the shoulders up. Actress Grace Savieri (who plays the title role in The Jungle Woman) tries to apply make-up to one of the local extras, with little success. Savieri is then shown in full make-up and costume alone, and then with co-star Bransby Williams, between filming takes. A final panning shot captures the filming of one of the village scenes for The Jungle Woman (1926).
