Beyond the Passage of Time: People the Size of a Fist – Part 1: The Baka and the Bantu (2009)
Meet the Baka Pygmies of the central African rainforest. They are not involved in agriculture or cattle breeding, but rather prefer to make use of what nature offers: fishing, hunting and collecting fruits, vegetables and roots – all of which they do with a lot of skill based on their profound knowledge of the flora and fauna. These people are familiar with civilization; they exchange meat and animal hides for old clothes, bottles and spear tips. And they have a great love of music, song and dance. The Pygmies are famous for their unique polyphonic singing, which is considered part of the UNESCO world cultural heritage.
