Anthropologists encounter several groups of "Uncontacted" people in the jungles of South America, in a preserved region on the edges of Brazil and Peru. Patiently communicating as best they can, with the help of translators who speak a dialect not too different, they learn about these people's experiences with rubber barons and invasion years before. They begin to help them integrate into modern living.Written by
Sorry little docu sucks at telling what appears to be a very good story
An uncontacted tribe emerges from the jungles of Amazon, due to an unsolved killing possibly by Peruvian paramilitaries or drug traffickers. The resulting contact leads to some friendliness with a more developed native community that can sorta speak their language. This leads to some humour (tribe thinks anthropologist's team cant sing), but also a lot of suspicion, a killing of a young man from the community by the tribe, revenge on the tribe by the community. Also someone sleeping with the tribe's chief's girl etc. Sounds fascinating right? There's a story there right? But no. We get this documentary, which totally sucks at any sort of narrative that could be exciting. Even the interesting bits here are the events themselves, there's nothing the movie adds, you could be like reading text on screen. Why couldn't they hire a real screenwriter to do this? What a shame.
