Expedition Naga is an exciting multi-sensory trip into one of the world’s most remote and least accessible regions in Northeast India near the border of Burma (Myanmar). Many areas had not seen foreigners for over 80 years when Peter van Ham and Jamie Saul were granted permission to do their fieldwork. The resulting film, still images and accounts can be compared with the diaries and photographs of British administrators-cum-explorers from expeditions in the 1920s and ’30s in the same areas, showing clearly the continuity of and changes to the Naga culture over that period.

With nearly 600 stunning contemporary and historic photographs, along with 140 minute film on the enclosed DVD.
