This film seems to me to give a flavour of hunter-gatherer lives of humans way back.
The people seem to
- have a lot of time; no rush, no deadlines, no trains to catch
- to be comfortable in their own skins
- to be close to laughter most of the time: more than we are.
The extra feature interview with Rolf de Beer about the making of film is also fascinating. It showed me something about how the culture of a group of humans is an important lifeblood for them; without it the are weakened and their life force seems to ebb away.
Seeing such a different culture caused me to reflect on how we also are in a culture, that we have little or no perspective on, but which is there and probably does have many odd and non-logical parts to it (e.g. why adulterous politicians have to go in the career naught corner for 18 months).
In English and an australian language (subtitled).
