66-68 Shakespeare St
Rohani is an 80-year-old sea nomad and this is his story. His tale is told entirely from his perspective, against the spectacular backdrop of the Togian Islands in the Coral Triangle, and recreates events that capture the turning points in his life as a hunter and as a man. Rohani’s past experiences have been brought to life by working closely with his family and friends in the village where he grew up. Storytelling is a big part of Bajau culture, and a way of preserving traditions through generations. Although Rohani had never had a camera pointed at him, it certainly wasn’t the first time he’d sat around telling stories. We are just lucky that he let the team capture it on film.
