The Pillar Of Strength
‘The Pillar of Strength’ is a wonderful story that touches on topics about family, natural relationships and human identity as well as the patterns and culture of life in the Borneo islands.
This animated short film shares the conflict in the relationship between father and son, as well as a child’s journey in knowing its origins. Rentap, is the son of an Iban tribal warrior in the Borneo archipelago where his father is a respected man and strongly adheres to the hereditary beliefs of his ancestors.
When an accident occurred while hunting in the forest, Rentap was assisted by the War God 'Sengalang Burong' who helped him identify his origins as an Iban warrior who was responsible for his entire tribe by holding the slogan 'Agi Idup, Agi Ngelaban'.
