The freedom struggle in the “Black Pacific” involves many peoples throughout the region. In an earlier post I provided information on the challenges faced by the Aeta in the Philippines. “Forgotten Bird of Paradise” provides much-needed coverage of the West Papua struggle for independence from Indonesia that has continued for over 45 years.
Produced, directed, filmed & edited by Dominic Brown.
For additional information about the West Papua independence movement see the official website of exiled leader Benny Wenda.
