A COUPLE OF weeks ago I posted this video, which supposedly showed an indigenous tribe — the Toulambi — in Papua New Guinea encountering a white man for the very first time. Sources showed the 15-minute video was shot in 1976.
The video went viral, some commenting how amazing it is, and how they were touched and moved by it. There were also the skeptics who, in this case, appear to be right. A link in the comments on my original post led me to a blog called Antipodes. It shed some light on this “hoax.” The video was written, produced, and directed by Belgian filmmaker, Jean-Pierre Dutilleux in 1993, not 1976 as was claimed.
