The “Punks For West Papua” documentary has picked up 4 more awards, winning Best Short Documentary, Best Featurette, Best Editing and Best Screenplay at the 2017 Global Independent Film Awards.

Screening dates kick off in Murwillumbah then onto Sydney, Canberra, Newcastle (*note change of date and venue) and Brookvale as part of the ‘Banned In Indonesia Screening Tour’, presented by The Free West Papua Campaign and Hired Gun TV. All screenings will be hosted by film director Anthony Ash Brennan along with guest speakers at each event.

Proceeds go to The United Liberation Movement Of West Papua.

The confronting 46 minute short film documents an Australian wide movement spearheaded by a Sydney punk band to raise awareness of the genocide of the Indonesian people by the Indonesian military, and contains footage by West Papuan film maker Wensi Fatubun who has spent years documenting human rights abuses against the West Papuans by the Indonesian military. Wensi has travelled to the UN in Geneva on many occasions, presenting his footage as proof of the ongoing human rights abuses occurring in West Papua. The UN human rights commission are now taking Wensi's footage very seriously.

On Saturday 10th December 2016 Indonesian police shut down a screening of the “Punks For West Papua” documentary for film students in Manado, Northern Sulawesi Province, Indonesia. Several West Papuan students were taken away for questioning. No one was detained. The shutting down of this screening is further proof of the lack of freedom of speech and human rights of the West Papuan people. This is a film that the Australian Government does not want you to see.

Along with the Global Independent Film awards last month, “Punks For West Papua” has won a host of other awards around the world over the past 12 months including the Sydney Indie Film Awards & the Hollywood International Independent Documentary awards; was the Humanitarian Feature Film Winner at the 2016 Variety Film Festival Online, received an Award Of Merit at IndieFest San Diego 2016 and has also been included in the Official Selection and screenings at many film festivals.

Since filming ‘Punks For West Papua’, Ash has continued to help spread awareness of the plight of the West Papuans, from organising global Rockin For West Papua live music and arts events to staging personal protests in various locations around the world, and has recently been invited to become the Australian representative for the Free West Papua campaign by the International Leader of the campaign Benny Wenda.
