A movie about Norwegian Audun Amundsen who first spent a month with the Mentawai tribe in Pedang, West Sumatra, Indonesia in 2004 before returning in 2009 for a three year stay.

Newtopia is an immense, soul-wrecking, humorous and sobering tale from a disappearing world that brings us to a place in time which will never be documented again.

The shaman Aman Paksa finds himself in a situation of continuous escalation towards modernity. For 15 years the director Audun Amundsen has followed Aman Paksa deep in the jungle of Indonesia and become a part of the clan, while documenting crucial key moments of a staggering cultural paradigm shift.

Newtopia tells a story about everyone’s future, and past, and at the same time we witness the forming of an unlikely life long friendship.
