    Twenty-eight years after filming Dead Birds, Gardner returned to the Dani villages in 1989 to see what had become of the people he had met and to show them the film. That visit is the kernel for Gardner’s latest work. “I have been told by people who know better that it is a risky business returning to a place where you have enjoyed some remarkable experience. But I will say that going back to the Highlands of Western New Guinea (aka West Papua) was enormously engaging. I saw people I cared for deeply and who became part of my life wherever I lived. Making a film about all this was not at all difficult.”
    – Robert Gardner

    Followed by a roundtable discussion with Robert Gardner, Susan Meiselas, William Rothman and
    Charles Warren
