Women of Sumba Land

Synopsis

For the people of Sumba, women have an exchange rate, which is known as belis, in the form of horses, cows, buffalos, and pigs with high price. Women in Sumba are also known to have cloth-weaving as their habit. This movie braids tradition, values, and hopes from the women in Sumba in the whirlpool of modernity, where tradition and culture seemed challenged to be modified.
