Beginnings

Since the early 1990s, Roye Villevoye has regularly visited the Asmat (a Papuan people) in Irian Jaya, Papua New Guinea. After several films, Beginnings returns to his perspective of the first and naive interest of a Westerner. In two parts, shot on the spot and in Holland, we get to know an almost paradise-like state of innocence. It only becomes clear later how this was achieved.
