The late Dennis O'Rourke was a giant among documentary filmmakers whose films documented the lives of indigenous peoples in the Asia-Pacific region. His 1991 "The Good Woman of Bangkok" won many intl. awards. From "The Shark Callers of Kontu" and "Cannibal Tours" to "Cunnamulla" and "Land Mines: A Love Story," O'Rourke set a high standard for documentary filmmaking. I had the pleasure of working with O'Rourke in the making of his important 1986 film about the 1954 "Bravo" H-bomb and the questions surrounding the "accidental" wind shifts that caused massive radiological damage to downwind populations and atolls. Here is a YouTube link to "Half Life" which is in English (with Greek subtitles) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTrkelQZ_ng
