TAWAI: A Voice from the Forest is a documentary film which examines indigenous people’s connection to nature and what humanity can learn from indigenous cultures.
Tawai is the word the nomadic hunter gatherers of Borneo use to describe their inner feeling of connection to nature.
British explorer Bruce Parry travels the world meeting indigenous cultures to discover what the world can learn from them, and the threats that they face.
From the jungles of Malaysia to the tributaries of the Amazon, TAWAI is a quest for reconnection, providing a powerful voice from the heart of the forest itself.
Bruce Parry, a former British Royal Marine and filmmaker, said: “I believe that the investigation of the film offers some revealing insights into how the way we think and feel might influence the way we structure our societies today – and how we might use this information to help create more balanced ways of relating to each other and the natural world.”
The explorer spent six years living with 15 different indigenous groups as a family member for the BBC TV series Tribe. To find out more about the documentaries that Bruce Parry has made, check out Bruce Parry’s website.
TAWAI: A Voice from the Forest will be released next month
