Short Film     Documentary

Leo, a young Dayak, visits his family for the Tiwah ceremony in the village where he was once living in Central Kalimantan. When he grew up, nature surrounded him. Now, years later, the environment is endangered by mining companies taking over the land. Losing the land means that many of the folk stories in Indonesia will be lost. Leo is going back to document the indigenous women's stories as an effort to preserve the nature, where the stories once originated.
