Just passing an idea around. How would Papua New Guineans feel about a film set in the, 'reality of now', so to speak. A film in the visual perspective of the people struggling to make a living in e.g Port Moresby. The story can be based on facts and what not and have the same style as City Of God, Slumdog Millionaire (intro) and many others.

A collective of art students and I discussed the social implications of what a movie might instigate. My argument was that the more real the story, the better. Once Were Warriors did so well because that was what life then really was like.

So would a realistic movie set in Papua New Guinea upset people or would people be more open to the idea?

shoot!!!! in PNG!!....the movie would be a great idea for png to open up to reality. theres so much to say and express to our young society who dont give much thought about reality that we live day to day. the movie should state the problem where most of us are becoming cheap labourers in our own land and our young generation thinks that life is simple and hang around parents even after they are married. it should give hope and determination to everyone to work hard for themselves and be proud PNGans..
