User ReviewsReview this title
A beautiful, haunting and most welcome opportunity to tune in to how the remaining few real egalitarian hunter gather societies relate to each other and their surroundings. How they live and breathe that connection and inter-relatedness, how their way of life keeps them so tightly in touch with the present moment, with each other and the soil on which they step. An insight into what we lose when we fall out of that interwoven way of life and most of all, an invitation to allow in and fully embody the heavy aching pain and frustration that our own daily actions are chipping away at these precious last living examples of true human harmony with nature. Chipping away at the resources that are the lifelines of our planet.
It is pain that we really need to face, fully open to and deeply feel. We owe it to these societies and we owe it our planet and to ourselves, to witness and be present to this process of destruction that is happening to us as one global unit.
Tawai means to feel a sense of connection to our surroundings, in a way like how a baby is connected to a mother and her breast. To know with its whole being that it needs her, that it feeds upon her and will not be able to survive without her and her love.
What makes me even sadder, in a way, is to read some of the reviews and realise that there are humans who can watch what I just watched and are completely blind to it's beauty, wisdom, and value.
The reason why human society is in the state it's in today is that we lost touch with nature, Mother Earth, and the spirit that is within all of manifest 'reality'.
Having lost touch with spirit, we are left with the illusion that we're nothing more than meat sacks struggling to survive in a relatively hostile environment. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Watch this movie if you're a truth seeker. I guess it's that simple. If you're not, you'll probably just get triggered by it.
This film did inspire deep thinking and sadness that we are not able to live in this kind of sharing community, however this community did not inspire individualism and striving to achieve which are the realities of the world we live in.
Hypocritical at best.
3/10: Not really worth your while.
