Films made by Papuan grassroots activists will be shown at the annual festival held in Ubud, Bali in October, alongside films such as “The Act of Killing”.
Papuan Voices is a video advocacy initiative with Papuan activists to more effectively tell their stories to the world. In 2011-12 EngageMedia and its partners the Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) and the Secretariat for Justice and Peace (SKPKC) in Jayapura and Merauke organised trainings with Papuan activists on video production and distribution skills.
Papuan Voices aims to bring the everyday stories of West Papuans to a wider audience.
