Storyline

For more than 40 years, the Indonesian government has been pursuing a colonialist policy of rare violence against the Papuan people of Western New Guinea (formerly Irian Jaya). This people, forgotten by all, struggle for the recognition of their cultural and political identity. In order to claim their rights, Papuan elites have created the OPM (Liberation Movement of West Papua) divided into two distinct branches, one political, the other military, of which one of the rebel leader is General Bernard Mawen. For 10 years, Damien Faure filmed these fighters. To date, he is the only filmmaker in the world to be able to gather audiovisual documentation on this conflict. Written by Anonymous.
