Documentary Description

The Ring of Fire: An Indonesian Odyssey is a series of five documentary films that documented the ten-year voyage[1] of two filmmakers, brothers Lorne Blair and Lawrence Blair, through the world's largest and least known archipelago. Financed by Ringo Starr, the Blair Brothers arrived in Indonesia from England in 1972. The Indonesian archipelago was still dominated by ancient paganism and the Blaire Brothers spent over two decades documenting the ecology of the islands and the spiritual beliefs of its peoples. One major result was the Emmy-nominated BBC/PBS television series Ring of Fire, a masterwork of modern adventure and ethnographic film. Cut from 80 hours of 16mm film in co-production with WGBH, Boston, RING OF FIRE was produced, directed and photographed by Lorne Blair and co-produced and written by Lawrence Blair. Executive producer was Frontline's David Fanning.

Love this series! First saw it on PBS back in the 80s. What
I saw and learnt in these films was responsible, in part,
for my decision to choose to study Anthropology &
Archaeology at University.
