Swiss Premiere

Residents of Paga Hill, in Papua New Guinea, are threatened by the construction of a gigantic hotel resort. Led by the charismatic Joe Moses, they rise up. This documentary then becomes an unrelenting thriller mixing money, power and politics. The australian resort company has spent huge sums to try and get the film banned… in vain: it is impeccably documented.
