Vanen - Plumes from Paradise
A 52' documentary directed in 2008 by Loïc Degen, Miguel A Garcia
Vanen, Plumes from Paradise is a dual portrait of the vanen, the Greater Bird-of-Paradise, and photographer Loïc Degen. This film recounts his quest and his sixth expedition in the Aru jungle, in the extreme south-eastern corner of Indonesia, along with seven friends from Wakua, a tiny village in the Archipelago.
Loïc has become one with the villagers. They confide in him and share secrets. Enough to nourish indefinitely the quest of a 34 year old man who still knows how to let himself be overwhelmed by the beauty, the subtlety and poetry of the creatures and the things that surround him.
