Film Screening: Dragon for Sale

May 1, 12:00pm - 3:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Hamilton Library, Room: 306

Dragon for Sale documents the Indonesian government’s “10 New Balis” development project in Eastern Indonesia and attempts to turn Flores and the Komodo Islands into an international tourist destination. The documentary film highlights the darker side of the project’s history, including catastrophic environmental degradation and multiple human rights violations as local populations are forced out of their ancestral homes to make way for resorts and restaurants. The film showcases the resistance movements of local communities striving to create alternative tourism development and conservation plans through an indigenous framework of human-animal kinship and coexistence.
