Director: Frank Hurley
This film is a record of two trips made by Frank Hurley to the Torres Strait Islands, and to Papua in 1920-21 and 1922-23. Hurley stated, "My ambition has been to bring back and portray some of the more remarkable incidents and customs which I was privileged to see, as well as to give an intimate glimpse into the domestic lite of primitive New Guinea peoples." His journeys take him from Thursday Island pearl diving and turtle riding, to the headhunters of Papua. The film was very well received at its original release, and called one ot the most beautiful travel films ever made".
