UN in your language

"No Word for Worry", by Runar Jarle Wiik

20 January, 18:30, Goethe Institute

Runtime: 52'

NoWordforWorryAs one of the last indigenous sea nomads, Hook must make a courageous voyage to salvage the remains of his unique culture. Hook grew up with the ocean as his universe; he is a sea nomad from a vanishing world. The film follows Hook from the bottom of the modern social ladder on a voyage into the heart of Moken territory off the coast of Myanmar. More than a quest to salvage the remains of his culture, he faces the universal questions of identity, love, loss and belonging.

Followed by a Q&A with Guest Speakers:

  • Runar Jarle Wiik, Film Director
  • Oriol Freixa Matalonga, UNESCO expert in Cultural Co-operation

Introduction by Niels Engelschiøn, Deputy Head of the UN's Mission in Norway

The discussion will be moderated by:

  • Cristina Gallach, UN Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information

Event organized in partnership with the Royal Embassy of Norway in Belgium.

 The film is in English
