Nomad‘s Planet: Congo (2002)
The lush, thick jungles of the Democratic Republic of Congo – rich in wildlife – beckon us to take a close look at the tribal civilizations that inhabit its depths. In this sparsely populated region of Africa, there exist people untouched by the modern world. Lacking electricity and running water, these communities co-exist in a remarkable culture of self-sufficiency in the wild. Conversely, inhabitants of other areas, ravaged by war, have been forced into refugee camps. This enthralling episode of Nomad’s Planet captures an insider’s look at the incredible resourcefulness that arises from the desperation and loss within these camps.
