Lon Marum : People of the Volcano

Director : Filip Tavelu & Soraya Hosni


Lon Marum : People of the Volcano tells the story of one of the most active volcanoes in the world, shared by the people who have had the longest relationship with it. The film engages with the complex reality that shapes when custodians of local knowledge are placed in direct contact with visiting scientists. Voices shift from local scholars attempting to stem the erosion of their knowledge value to scientists who are grappling with the idea that, despite their everyday tasks & technology, they too have something to learn.
