Living cultures
Summary In the heart of Central Africa's equatorial forest, strange music merge from the dense jungle. They are the Baaka pygmies, who sing and dance to appeal to the spirits of hunting and honey gathering. Their life is a never-ending song that expresses their intense spirituality and their deep communion with the forest. Produced under the High Patronage of Unesco, this film follows the daily lives of a group of Baaka, who live only of hunting, honey gathering and singing. Our aim is to present this unique culture, and to show that if it were to disappear, the world would be poorer for it
