culture quest

We travel to East Timor with a rebel fighter and writer named Naldo Rei who was instrumental in the 15-year bloody struggle for independence from Indonesia. Naldo and his fellow East Timorese are now looking towards an uncertain but hopeful future for a country with a lot of potential, including what Conservation International calls the most biodiverse swath of ocean right off the shore of their capital city.

About Culture Quest:

Culture Quest is a series that looks at life through the lens of the world's artists, artisans and keepers of culture.

It's through that lens that we not only look at the day-to-day struggles and successes of the individual people we are spending time with, but also look at the larger issues that are affecting the places they call home.

Culture Quest is a chance to see modern life through human expression that can range from ancient and traditional to modern and reactive.

Looking at life through the lens of art, artisanship and traditional culture is a perfect way to hold up the mirror to the wide spectrum of struggles and successes that people around the planet go through each and every day of their lives.
