This is Clive Porabou's third Mekamui/Bougainville film. While the first two were a reaction to the imminent danger of the reopening of the Panguna Gold and Copper Mine, 'Bougainville after the War' was a film he had long wanted to make and was not pushed into by the political situation. A native Bougainvillian, Clive, wants to illustrate the beauty of his Island and the changes which have taken place, since the war and the closure of Rio Tinto's Panguna mine. He show the little businesses, the school, which teaches the children their Mothers tongue, new founded tourist resorts and much more. During the interviews, Clive depicts how the indigenous population are creative trying themselves in business, which used to be only run by foreigners before the crisis. Further, he convey how the Bougainvillians see their future in gardening and tourism, letting the mineral resources rest in the ground while taking good care of their land so it can be passed on to future generations.
