The Golden Dragon and the Upper Bird


This is a visually entertaining documentary about two exotic creatures from Indonesia, the Arowana, a fish and the Enggang, a bird.

The Enggang is a bird representing the god of war and sacred to the Dayak, the indigenous people of Borneo. The film sheds light on the meaning the Enggans bird symbol has in Dakak Kenyah tribe.
