Indonesia

The Village Hub

This is a fascinating documentary about a sustainability project that Willie Smits and the Masarang Foundation designed for rural Indonesia.

Smits designed a process for harvesting the sap of sugar palm trees on a “village scale” that also produces useable bi-products. Brilliant.

The entire factory can be broken down and fit into two shipping containers and transported by truck and ship. Wow.

Film by Raymond Hartman and Bureau Beeldtaal Filmmakers.

500Px photographer Taufik Sudjatnika has an incredible set of images of life in rural Indonesia shot with a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L lens. While many of these images may have been staged they’re still spectacular in composition and technical detail.
