The Yali Story - DVD

The story of how God entered their world and spoke His Word


Title: The Yali Story - DVD
Reviewed By: Richard and linda D
Date: Sunday 21 October, 2012
Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]
The Yali Story highlights the fascinating field of visual anthropology, following in the footsteps of Nanook of the North (Robert J. Flaherty) and Dead Birds (Robert Gardner). Beyond the Gates of Splendor (Jim Hanon) is more a documentary about the Waodani, than a study in visual anthropology. All four of these films are highly recommended, but our special emphasis is upon the Yali people, who have been given the Gospel, with tremendous acceptance of the saving grace of Jesus. In the course of the narration, mention is made of the possible murder of the missionaries living with the Yali, with reference to the Dani evangelists also being at risk (the Dani lived just over the ridge, from the Yali). Both of these peoples live in the general vicinity of the Baliem (alternately spelled Balim) Valley, in the Central Highlands of Papua New Guinea (the Yali live slightly to the east of the Dani, with the two groups sharing a common language (though each group has slight variations in dialect)). Interestingly, at one time, over 90% of the Dani were Christian believers, with figures somewhat difficult to come by currently. While all four of the noted films are not available at ChristianCinema, The Yali Story and Beyond the Gates of Splendor are, with both given our highest rating of *****. Enjoy!
