Archival footage shot by an amateur filmmaker while visiting Southeastern Asia in 1972.
It contains stock footage of Batak People territories, North Sumatra, Indonesia: people living in villages by a river in typical Indonesian houses made of straw and wood, passengers loading bags in a bus, men making an Indonesian while tourists film them with 8mm cameras, farmers and breeders working, a man extracting natural rubber from a tree, traffic (bicycles, taxis and cars) in a small town, and more.
00:37 Berastagi Jambur taras—This building had been built in 1967 for various ceremonies in the town of Berastagi in traditional Batak Karo ethnic style. Then the filmmaker got in the bus and went south, passing by Bukit Gundul (Bukit sipiso-piso: it means ‘naked hill’) at 03:02. 03:10 A panorama of Lake Toba from Tongqing (maybe Sapo Juma resort). Today the shore line of the lake has changed a little. In that place Batak Toba ethnic people live. Then the filmmaker visited Samosir Island on Lake Toba where another Batak group live: Batak Samosir. Their villages, dances and the ancient Batak Kingdom stone sculpture in the Museum Sipalakka in Tuktuk. And finally footage of the ferry from Tuktuk to Parapat (07:35) and of people extracting rubber somewhere near the town (09:03).
