The video documentary about the Akha of Thailand and Laos, and their treatment at the hand of fundamentalist mission organizations has now been posted.
A documentary film about a mountain ethnic group in South East Asia, the Prisoners of a White God, tells the story about a researcher, who investigates the activities of christian missionaries and international development among the Akha peoples.
Prisoners of a White God received the Grand Prixes at RAFF Film Festival, at Ecofilm Festival, at Festival of the Mountain Films, at "It's Up To You" Film Festival and the Main Prize at Ekotopfilm in 2008!
Time constraints and documentary size prevented all the excellent footage that was collected from being put in this video, and we see this film as an understatement of the scale of the child removals of what we saw over many years in Thailand, an ethnocide at best, a genocide of systematic abuse of human rights.
