Abstract:

They cross the Himalayas every year with their heavy-loaded yacks in search of salt. They are the Dolpo. Our film crews have accompanied them on a crazy journey; one that is not suitable for those afraid of heights. Undoubtedly, the Dolpo are the nomadic people who risk their lives the most in order to survive. The basin of the Cauca river in Venezuela has the most extensive untouched jungles of South America. Near its spectacular waterfalls, we find the Sanama Indians, who still live isolated from the world. We will learn the secrets of this virgin jungle through them. In the darkness of the forest, we will witness Shamanic rituals in which sacona, a powerful hallucinogen, is consumed. The Cazajo are the nomads found in the Altai Mountains, on the border of Kazakhstan. They are expert falconers; and they continue to hunt with their eagles as they did in time immemorial. They live in comfortable yurtas, circular homes covered with felt, which protect them from the extreme cold of the winter. Our crew filmed the wolf hunts. The Ando travel through Tiber with their herds of sheep. In the distance they appear at the foot of the mountains like slow moving snowflakes. They are true mountain shepherds who defy the abysses to feed their herds. In the south of Niger, we met the mysterious Bororo. A Fulani group coexists with the Tuareg people since yesteryear. They practice an extreme worship of beauty. In their Worso festival, the men get overly spruced up in order to surprise the women. Their eyes and teeth are shiny white. Their gestures and facial expressions accentuate their fine delicate features.
