Joining the Quartet on stage at Lopez Center are Festival Artistic Director Aloysia Friedmann, viola/violin; Jon Kimura Parker, piano; Bion Tsang, cello, and Owen Kotler, clarinet.

AWIM and the Hands of Time is short film about the life and culture of the Awim people, who inhabit a remote area of Papua New Guinea in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. In 2008, there was a scientific expedition (the Cruz Mayor Expedition) that traveled through Papua New Guinea, discovering and investigating the great archaeological and anthropological richness of the area.  One of the scientists’ goals was to explore the possible meaning of the “handprint art” that can be found in the caves of this area of the world; using non-aggressive methods, they were able to bring back samples from 15 caves for analysis in Canadian laboratories. AWIM presents an intriguing view of this aspect of the expedition, which located more than 200 grottos with cave paintings of a variety of motifs and figures – including animals that have been extinct for thousands of years. This film is the account of their expedition.

These films are organized by the FHFF as an ongoing fundraiser for the Friday Harbor Film Festival.   Show time is at 7:00 p.m.

Running time:  45 minutes.
