Event Description

In 2018, an Evangelical Christian man named John Chau made a covert voyage to North Sentinel Island to visit one of the last voluntarily “uncontacted” tribes on the planet. The people of the island choose to eschew contact with modern society. Nevertheless, the 26-year-old Chau ignored the advice of his family and attempted to preach his Christian beliefs to the islanders. He was killed at the start of his second visit. Chau’s story is the subject of this new documentary from Boys State directors Amanda McBaine and Jesse Moss. Using Chau’s extensive diaries and a long letter from his grieving father as a starting point. Those elements work together to paint a three-dimensional picture of Chau as a young man driven by genuine spiritual conviction, an unquenchable thirst for glory, and a child’s blindness to the fact that things sometimes go horribly wrong. The people of North Sentinel Island are given an equally respectful portrayal. While it’s always clear that Chau’s idea was doomed to fail, McBaine and Moss explore the world that shaped him through a variety of cultural lenses—IndieWire

“A compelling investigation.”—Hollywood Reporter
