11/11 Skin Stories
Many people do not understand the significance the art form of tattoo holds in many cultures across the globe. For some, the mark of the tattoo symbolizes their true essence, and for others, the tattoo is a mark of traditions, values and beliefs. Skin Stories is an anthology of stories and stunning images gathered from the hot spots of Pacific tattoo.
11/12 Waiting for John
Waiting for John explores the extraordinary story of the last Cargo Cult, the John Frum Movement, from the perspective of the last village of believers, as they struggle to preserve their way of life in the modern world. In the process the film asks, where do our prophets come from? And what makes people believe?
