Tawai is the word the nomadic hunter-gatherers of Borneo use to describe their inner feeling of connection to nature. Adventurer Bruce Parry returns to Borneo to reconnect with the Penan, whom he first met a decade ago, and to see how their way of life is being affected by massive logging projects in the area.
His time with the Penan is the starting point for Bruce to explore what has changed in our interaction with the natural world. The result is this dreamy, philosophical and sociological look at life as Parry travels from the jungles of Malaysia to the tributaries of the Amazon searching for a deeper understanding of humanity, society and the natural world.
Tawai: a voice from the forest will screen daily from September 29th.
PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO ADVERTS PLAYED BEFORE FILMS IN THE BERTHA DOCHOUSE SCREEN. ALL FEATURES WILL START PROMPTLY FOLLOWING A SELECTION OF TRAILERS.
