OPHIR is a powerful and poignant story of revolution in the Pacific. Documentarist Alexandre Berman and investigative journalist Olivier Pollet bring us into events leading to the election of independence for Bougainville, Papua New Guinea. The voices of Bougainville people are center stage, and what unfolds is a haunting portrait of a determined people who fight for their sovereignty and freedom from the chains of colonialism. — Micki Davis
