ELAR & Chouette Films Video Installation: Tobian (Hatohobei)

Today on the blog, we are sharing the third video from the video installation created by Anna and Remy Sowa of Chouette Films. This film was created from footage from the Tobian (Ramari Hatohobei) deposit at ELAR, deposited by ELDP grantees Bobby and Peter Black.

On this beautiful film, Bobby shared:

The video begins with Tobi, home island of the Ramari Hatohobei community, then moves on to a group of Tobian women in its daughter community 300 miles north in Echang, Koror, Palau, who are demonstrating how to make a variety of traditional baskets and discussing their use. The video ends with Helen Reef, 40 miles east of Tobi, the community’s traditional leader.

Thank you to Anna, Remy, Bobby, Peter and the speakers who made this film possible! The rest of the films will be featured on the blog (one per week) for the next several weeks!
