Mataungan (5) - A second photo Gallery. Pictures selected by Rod Bishop

In earlier posts which you can find by clicking on these links Mataungan (1)Mataungan (2)Mataungan (3) and Mataungan (4) Rod Bishop has chronicled the story of the production of a documentary produced at La Trobe University and made with funding from the then newly-established Experimental Film Fund. It was tentatively titled Mataungan. All of this happened way back in 1972. The film was never completed and since the publication of the posts began more information has emerged to add to the troubled history of the film.

This is the second photo gallery selected by Rod Bishop, one of the original film-makers who travelled to PNG back in 1972.

The surviving Mataungan footage will be used in two exhibitions at the Queensland Art Gallery – A Bit Na Ta: A Sense of Place, Rabaul, Papua New Guinea and No 1 Neighbour: Art in Papua New Guinea 1966 – 2016. The concurrent exhibitions run from 15 October 2016 to 29 January 2017.
