Modern political, economic and social factors pose significant threat to Indigenous and traditional cultures. But keeping in touch with tradition isn’t only the work of elders and anthropologists. These young creatives reflect on the role that film, literature and photography can play in promoting awareness and preserving culture.

Moderenisasi politik, ekonomi dan faktor sosial menjadi sebuat ancaman pada keberadaan budaya dan tradisi lokal. Namun untuk menjaga tradisi dan budaya bukan hanya tanggungjawab para orang tua atau antropolog. Para kreator muda ini mampu membangkitkan kesadaran berbudaya dan pelestariannya melalui film, sastra, dan fotografi.
