Vala North

Stephani Gordon, Dan Evans, John Aini, David Mitchell | 2019 | 12 min.

2022 Official Selection

In the far northern atolls of Papua New Guinea, scientist chieftain and visionary John Aini resurrects old secret ways and melds them with what he and his fellow chieftains and their people know of the coral reefs they rely on. Vala North is a story of a thin thread of hope in a changing world, hope for coral reefs around these islands, and hope for the communities that rely on them.
