Beyond the Passage of Time
1 Season, 10 Episodes
Beyond the Passage of Time investigates an ancient world that is rapidly disappearing as it collides with modernity. Each episode takes the viewer into a different ancient tribe to look at its untampered traditions and customs. Far from the tourist trail, there is an intimacy in the portraits of the Namibian Himba, Moroccan Berbers and Central African Pygmies. We look at the day-to-day tasks of these last remaining tribes, as well as their extravagant celebrations. Each tribe has its own story to tell, but are these tribes going to become submerged by Western civilization as they struggle to keep themselves separate?
