In 2006 John, Elaine and Carol visited Teddy in his village of Palembei in Middle Sepik. It was then organised for Teddy to return the gesture by going to Canada through a Andrew Fellow, where he was the artist in residence at the Museum of Anthropology for 5 months.
The documentary is stunningly shot and it reminded me of the fact that I obviously have not seen everything in my own country. As the film begins and our visitors travel further up the Sepik River to Palembei, Carol begins to note the change in the carvings. It becomes apparent to her that the same look-alike carvings we see at the shops in cities are definitely more mundane compared to the unique carving pieces she is seeing on this journey.
