Marc Thümmler gave a presentation about the making of a children’s movie at the Pidgins, Creoles and Development -workshop at Uni Bremen. The movie “The Tale of the Coconut” was made in collaboration between the people of Karawara, the filmmaker Marc Thümmler and FILMGESTALTEN and we had the chance to see a sneak preview today. The plot is based on an orally transmitted legend of the Duke of York islands.
