We have a very special Screening of Tawai with Q&As in person with BRUCE PARRY

(BBC’s “Tribe” and “Amazon”)

Royal Marine Commander-turned- explorer Bruce Parry has led expeditions to over a dozen of
the world’s most remote and thus intriguing corners, as exemplified by his 2002 TV
documentary Cannibals And Crampons. Ever alert to how humankind has changed since we
made the transition from nomadic hunter-gatherers to settlers, he travels with renowned
cinematographer Mark Ellam (White Sun, The Take) from the heart of the Amazon to the jungles
of Malaysia and beyond, where they meet a fascinating variety of indigenous peoples. These
encounters allow them to reflect on the ways societies have become structured, and how we
might rediscover our loosely connected origins to help shape more balanced relationships with
our world and each other.
