The Films

There are seven fragile reels of 16mm film from Lord Moyne’s expeditions.

These films are of great historical & anthropological interest as they are the first known moving images from the islands that now make up Papua New Guinea.

Project Walkabout aims to preserve these important 16mm reels by raising funds to restore and digitise the reels. Due to their fragile condition they require specialist treatment and the cost of restoration is considerable.
