"Fighting for Nothing to Happen" accompanies the attempts of a Christian NGO to push forward a relocation project in eastern Indonesia. Featuring a main character, it provides insights in the topics of development and religion, brokerage, regional government structures in decentralized Indonesia and the local culture of Flores.
After the volcanic eruption of Mount Rokatenda, the people of Palue Island in east Indonesia shall be relocated. But are the planned relocation and the 'new' life at Besar Island really promising? "Fighting for Nothing to Happen", based on three months of ethnographic fieldwork, accompanies Father Cyrillus, priest and employee of a Christian NGO, in his efforts to promote and drive forward the relocation project. A worried host community and unclear land rights at the relocation site, a corrupt and unorganized government in the district capital and impatient refugees in temporary shelters are challenging Father Cyrillus and his companions in their attempts to make the best of the situation.
