The Mission

New documentary The Mission by directors Jess Moss and Amanda McBaine delves into the event that made headlines in 2018 when John Chau, an American missionary, was killed with arrows while attempting to make contact with an isolated Indigenous community. The film provides context for the incident through interview clips with Chau as well as his private writings detailing his interest in the isolated tribe. From comments from members of the community who supported his endeavour, to revelations of his father’s concern with his plans to seek out the tribe, The Mission comes together as a highly fascinating and absorbing documentary.
