The Golden Future of the Women of Lihir

Das Paradies ist anderswo

In 1982 gold was discovered on Lihir. In 1995 a gold mine was opened. Ever since then, one of the most tradition-bound societies in the world has undergone an enormous, even violent upheaval. The film shows the coexistence and the clash of two extremely different worlds: shell money and gold coins, barter and cash business, forest spirits and fax machines. The dramatic cultural transition is observed from the viewpoint of the women. The entire history is told through the stories of a few women and their lives between west and southeast.
