Sarawak going, going…

I’m working on a video project in Sarawak, yet another dam, yet another land rights dispute, yet more displaced people, yet more misery and hardship to come… will it ever end?

Sarawak Gone explores four remote Bidayu communities accessible by foot within an hour’s drive from Kuching, capital city of Sarawak, Malaysia. They will lose their livelihood, traditional lands and culture, their rights and heritage with the development of the controversial Bengoh Dam project.

Sarawak Gone is a micro docs series intended to raise awareness to the denigration of the rapidly dwindling societies on the island of Borneo, the native land titles at stake and the rapidly decreasing habitats for protected and endangered flora and fauna.

Micro-docs are short, 5 – 10 minute documentaries designed for online distribution and portable media devices and laptop screening events.
