Aboriginal languages of Papua-New Guinea, English, with French subtitles
In Papua New Guinea, tribes are paid to dance and provide a change of scenery for busloads of tourists, while families have ceded their land to companies like ExxonMobil in exchange for the promise to build schools and hospitals. But nothing came of it. While tourists turn their cameras to the dances that have completely lost their meaning, a nearby world is quietly disappearing.
