52' (ENG), 90' (GER, ENG subs)
Find out about the beauty of indigenious cultures - powerful, touching and thoughtful.
At the edges of the world we know, far away from civilization, the last indigenous communities live as hunters, shepherds, farmers or fishermen. Before these last indigenous ways of life also have to give way to constant globalisation, we travelled to them - with the aim of making the beauty of their cultures visible to us. But civilization is unstoppable, we see nomads settling down, Indians watching television deep in the forests of the Amazon, while others have begun to defend themselves against the destruction of their habitat, sometimes with help of international organizations. The film takes us to the most remote parts of the world and to the people who live there.
The photographer Markus Mauthe visited these last indigenous peoples to capture the inherent beauty of their cultures, before they too fall victim to ever-advancing globalisation. The journey leads from South Sudan and Ethiopia to Malay sea nomads and Brazilian Indians in Mato Grosso, who have started to defend themselves against the destruction of their natural habitat.
