Dangerous on-the-way - Mel O'Callaghan, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, 2017
Filmed in North East Borneo to attend a tradition: the harvesting of birds’ nests, a particularly dangerous ritual, performed twice a year by the Orang Sungai people, at a height of over 120 meters – in the “white caves” of Gomantong. The film focuses on the "ekstasis" this ritual induces, the mental state described as being “outside oneself”.
