Summary
This 5-film series documents the ten-year voyage of brothers Lorne and Lawrence Blair through the islands of Indonesia. In "Spice Island saga, " the Blairs accompany the piratical Bugis tribe through the Spice Islands in search of the Bird of Paradise. "Dance of the warriors" takes the Blairs to Komodo to film the Komodo "dragon", then on to Sumba where they witness a form of human sacrifice, and finally on to New Guinea to live with Asmat headhunters whose lives have not changed in over 50,000 years. The Blairs travel "East of Krakatoa" to view a still-erupting volcano and encounter a world of "medieval courts, mystical shadow puppet plays, forgers of magical swords, healers with supernatural powers, and whole communities ruled by the powerful Spirit of the South Seas. In "Dream wanderers of Borneo, " the Blairs travel through 800 miles of rainforest to find the nomadic Punan Dyaks. "Beyond the ring of fire" finds Lawrence Blair on a "retrospective" voyage, revisiting a number of the islands from the previous films and adding a few new destinations.--paraphrased from container
