“Peoples of the Indonesian Archipelago, Timor Leste and Papua”
22-30 August 2014, Douarnenez (France)
This year’s Douarnenez Film Festival – which is a major cinematographic event combining creativity and collective reflection, art and criticism to explore the complexity of the world – will be dedicated to the peoples of the Indonesian Archipelago, Timor Leste and Papua.
The notion of human heritage, including language, culture, and the manifold forms of expression of peoples and communities, underlay the festival from its very beginnings. The aim is to give people a voice and the opportunity to tell their own story through film, literature, photography and music, whether these people are – in their “normal environment” -marginalised or excluded, torn apart or deported, besieged or reduced to silence, dumped or displaced, colonised, dominated against their will or in rebellion.
Through 60 – 70 films, features, documentaries, animation, short and long, the Douarnenez Film Festival will be a platform for these peoples and their cultures. Among the guests will be filmmakers, writers, journalists, human rights activists, historians and many more from Indonesia, Timor Leste, Western Papaua and Europe.
