Walkabout (Retail) Store is a portrayal of a Polish missionary and his movements between the various settlements in the rainforest of the East Sepik Province of Papua New Guinea. The story reflects upon traditional concepts of exchange and negotiation, disclosing the change-producing elements of religion and commodification. The footage for this audio-visual project was shot by Daniela Vávrová during her year-long fieldwork in the area. She is momentary editing the story together with Kristian Lupinski. Borut Telban, whose anthropological research among the Karawari-speaking people has spanned more than twenty years, will act as consultant.
