Synopsis: After the collapse of the global economy in 2008, Rob Henry decides to leave his job in Melbourne and go in search of a more sustainable way of life. Arriving to the tropical Islands of Mentawai, Indonesia, he finds himself living in a small coconut farming settlement.

Filmed over the course of eight years, As Worlds Divide takes us on an intimate journey inside the lives of an indigenous people who are losing connection with their land and culture. The impacts are devastating, but for the Mentawai there is hope amidst a small community of tribes-people still living traditionally and abundantly in the forest.

Connect and support: As part of this project we’ve established a not-for-profit organisation, the Indigenous Education Foundation (IEF), to help Indigenous Mentawai get their cultural education program (Suku Mentawai) off of the ground. Please support our vision. Take action.
