Tawai: A Voice From the Forest w/ Q&A


Dir. Bruce Parry | UK | 101 min | cert U
 
In this dreamy, philosophical look at life explorer Bruce Parry (Tribe, BBC) travels the world in exploration of a deeper understanding of indigenous peoples and how their way of life can benefit those in the industrialised world.
 
Bruce Parry’s time living with indigenous peoples has given him a unique insight into the human condition and his time spent visiting places on the environmental frontline has allowed him a broad perspective of our place on the planet. From the forests of Borneo to the Saddhu of India on the Ganges; from the Amazon Jungle to the Isle of Skye, this poetic, thought-provoking documentary explores what might have changed within the human psyche since we stopped since we stopped roaming and began to settle. What can we learn from how nomadic tribes around the world live and how might this help us create more balanced ways of relating to each other and the natural world?
 
Tawai (the word the nomadic hunter-gatherers of Borneo use to describe their inner feeling of connection to nature) provides a powerful voice to indigenous peoples that demands be heard before it is completely lost.
 
Director Bruce Parry will be present for an introduction and after-screening Q&A to the film.
