Living in our Globalized World: Notes 2 Cannibal tours – A first look Copyright Bruce Owen 2011 - A documentary that follows a boat of tourists visiting villages along the Sepik river in Papua New Guinea around 1987 (released in 1989) - This is a very extreme case of cultures in contact. Few of the cases in this course will involve this obvious a contrast, but the film raises a lot of interesting issues that are relevant to other cases, too - by Dennis O’Rourke - born in Brisbane, Australia - Lived in Papua New Guinea (PNG) from 1974-1979, working with the new government before and after independence from Britain - speaks Tok Pisin, the pidgin language spoken there - a pidgin language is a simplified language that arises to facilitate communication in situations of trade or other contact between people speaking two or more different languages - pidgins combine words and simplified grammar from the two or more languages, and are generally not anyone’s native language - you can pick up some basically English words in the Tok Pisin that you hear in the film - The tourists come from Germany, Italy, the US, and apparently other places
