West Papua

West Papua The Baliem Valley in the highlands of West Papua remains one of the remotest corners of the planet. Sealed off from the world by its geography and more recently by the Indonesian government. The latest phase of an Indonesian military campaign to eradicate the Papuan independence movement and its armed wing the OPM, is being fought against the highlanders. Around 5,000 people have been driven away from their villages into the bush, many have been killed. We profile events with film smuggled out from this remote Pacific warzone.
