Bikpela Bagarap (Big Damage) (trailer)

BIKPELA BAGARAP (Big Damage) reveals the human face of logging in Papua New Guinea.

It is a tale of exploitation and broken promises, where local people are treated as second-rate citizens in their own country by Malaysian logging companies and corrupt politicians. Customary landowners are forced into signing documents they don't understand, for the promise of "development" - fresh water, health and education, but these essential services are rarely provided. Instead, their traditional hunting grounds are destroyed, waterways polluted, and their way of life ruined forever.
