#wafsac – Watch a Film, Save a Culture
In 2008, Rob Henry packed up his life in Melbourne and flew to the Mentawai Islands, Indonesia in the hope of pursuing a more sustainable and fulfilling way of life. What he found instead were a people facing a threat far more pressing than his own.
9 years on Henry is returning to Melbourne to share the Mentawai people’s story. As the remaining tribes-people battle for their culture and land there is still hope amongst a small group of tribal educators who are making a stand.
Henry and the Indigenous Education Foundation (IEF) would like to welcome you to the official premiere of feature documentary film, As Worlds Divide, and launch of an exciting ‘watch a film, save a culture’ campaign.
This is an event you do not want to miss. Hope to see you there.
All proceeds from this event will go directly to the community’s Cultural & Environmental Education Program (CEEP) via IEF.
