We were doing the score for the short documentary Kanu belong Keram by Daniel von Rüdiger. It was winning besides other prices BEST SCORE at the Hollywood International Independent Documentary AWARDS.
Kanu belong Keram is a document of the building of a canoe in the remote village Kambot. It is located at the jungle river Keram, which is a side stream of the great jungle river Sepik in Papua New Guinea. The building of a canoe can be seen as an example of the importance and greatness of community work. Just the strength of many people can achieve something so big and heavy. The indigene population is highly adapted to their environment. The strength of their bodies, the synchronization as a group and practical know how is compensating the lack of technical equipment. The hard work is manifested in their healthy physical appearance. The documentary is without comment but with statements of the appearing villagers. Their English skills is besides their ‘Western’ cloth an example of outside influence which reached even these very remote areas of our planet.
The audio and video footage of the documentary is used in our track KANU.
