The ground-breaking film charts Bruce’s investigation from the forests of Borneo, to the Saddhu of India on the Ganges and from the Amazon to the Isle of Skye. He explores what has happened to humankind since we stopped roaming and began to settle. When we stopped being at one with nature and began to shape it to our own needs and how that has affected tribes around the world and what we can learn from their way of living. He queries what happened to our societies and how we relate to the natural world. The feature length documentary film contains extraordinary footage and is the culmination of Bruce’s journey. The word Tawai comes from the Penan People of Borneo. The Penan were the last indigenous community that Bruce visited in BBC documentary Tribe. His time with this extraordinary group led him to re-evaluate all he had previously learned about human nature and society.
