Description

This film follows the efforts made by the men and women of Flores Island in Indonesia to re-invent their daily lives after 32 years of dictatorship. Through the simple quest for clean running water, Catholics and Muslims work together to introduce a direct democracy and sustainable autonomy. With the ancient Ngada warrior culture serving as a backdrop, this film reminds us that all men are born brothers.
