Blowpipe Maker Shares Rare, Ancient Craft | Short Film Showcase

In “Balan the Blowpipe Maker,” filmmaker Ross Harrison introduces viewers to an indigenous Malaysian elder and craftsman. “Only a few elders of Borneo’s Penan tribe still know how to make their unique hunting tool, the blowpipe. Balan is the last person in his village who practices the craft,” says Harrison.
This short video incorporates footage from Harrison’s 30-minute documentary “Sunset Over Selungo”, which focuses on rain forest protection and land rights in Malaysian Borneo.
