Watch the film on Sooner


Located in the Solomon Islands in the southwestern Pacific Ocean, Bougainville is part of Papua New Guinea. Ophir looks back at the history of a people who have suffered colonisation but are still seeking freedom and independence. An anthropological and historical documentary that thoroughly deciphers the mechanisms and mutations of a colonialism that is still far from being totally over.
