Storyline

Joe Leahy is the half-caste son of one of the first explorers of the Papua New Guinean interior. His relations with the local Ganiga tribe who work his coffee plantation on their land are difficult at times. However he has successfully managed to get them to agree to open a second plantation in partnership with him. Things are looking up until the international coffee market hits rough times and conflict seems imminent between the Ganiga and their neighbouring traditional enemies.

A brilliant documentary about a unique set of people.
30 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I lived in PNG for four years and have a house up in the Mt. Hagen area which is where the documentary was filmed. Therefore, I am in a position to say that this is simply a brilliant piece of work that captures the life and culture of an amazing group of people. During the last millennium, time appears to have stood still here while the rest of the world has moved through the progressive technological ages. There is a lot of black humour in the documentary with some seriously funny scenes and yet it highlights some very real and serious issues. What other documentary will show live coverage of a full scale tribal warfare of warriors armed with bows and arrows? Anybody can enjoy this documentary and I really recommend it because PNG is truly the land of the unexpected.
