Philius Swimming

The story of 5 Kenyah Dayak elders returning to the places of their childhood, high in the remote mountains of North Kalimantan

Earlier this year we were invited to support and join a unique expedition to the remote highlands of North Kalimantan, and we jumped at the opportunity. The aim was to document the emotional journey of 5 Dayaks as they travelled back to their childhood and ancestral home of Long Saan. Below is a trailer for the upcoming film that features the amazing Philius (also photographed above), and David Metcalf, cultural photographer and the brains behind the project.

If you’d like to find out more about this project you can visit the website, where you can contribute directly to the production and distribution of the film.
