Audun Amundsen leaves a Norway and a western society he has had enough of, to the Indonesian jungle to live with one of the last remaining traditional societies in the world. Aman Paksa, the shaman of the tribe, lives in and of the nature, for better or worse. They develop a close relationship, while the Mentawa culture is hungry for, and undergoes modernization and change. Audun followed the tribal society for over 14 years, and Newtopia provides a unique insight into how a tribal society adapts to the modern world. It is a story on many levels, which challenges, entertains, fascinates and engages. Today, Amundsen is a member of The Explorers Club in a fairly exclusive company with names like Roald Amundsen and Neil Armstrong.
