Jungle Nomads of the Himalayas (2003)

Only available in Canada, United States

The Raji scale the trees of the great Terai forest, risking their lives to harvest the honey of the apis laboriosa – the largest migratory bee in the world. After discovering written accounts of the Raji's way of life, photographer and filmmaker Eric Valli set out to discover what had become of these nomadic people and their disappearing forest along the India-Nepal border. This film tells the story of the last of the Raji and of Eric’s quest, driven by his fascination with man’s relation to nature. A Raji named Bahadur, both slave and master of the bees, defies the towering trees and braves death for the survival of his people.
