|Description:||Papua New Guinea has undergone tremendous socio-political upheaval and change in this century. The area has witnessed colonialism, capitalism, Christianity and environmental degradation. Dramatic cultural shifts occurred from the 1970s to the 1990s. This video captures these painful transitions within a series of interviews following a drunken melee and murder of a young man. These events largely centered on negotiations over compensation payments to be made for the killing. Guide /discussion questions included.|
