Significant social documentary examines PNG missionary
Review of Papa Bilong Chimbu, directed and produced by Verena Thomas
Papa Bilong Chimbu is Verena Thomas' affectionate examination of the life of her great uncle John Nilles. Father Nilles was a German missionary who worked in the highlands of Papua New Guinea for more than 50 years. Thomas steers us through Father Nilles' career and life as we return with her to the Chimbu region to meet his friends, parishioners, those who converted, educated and supported.
