An award-winning drama-documentary about the Baka pygmies of Cameroon's Dju rainforest. Made over two years, the film reveals the pygmies' symbiotic relationship with the living world of the forest: gathering insects and fruit, hunting, fishing and scaling 140 ft. trees in search of honey; and also offers a rare insight into their folk-lore-rich culture with music and healing dances woven around the forest and its myths.
