Denias is a fantastic film with some wonderful acting and absolutely breathtaking views of West Papua in Indonesia. I am not fluent in Indonesian but at the time there were no subtitles but it was very easy to follow, a tremendous insight was given in to the inhabitants of this remote region. This film has educational content too which is generally obscure in Indonesia.We see the education system in this neck of the woods and the opportunities or lack of opportunities. It really puts Indonesia on the map, generally news coming out of such an amazing country tends to be rather negative. Great actors and some brilliant scenes full of emotion. Can't wait for the next film to be produced, hopefully sooner rather than later.
