I-Kwan, the Mnong Child

The Master of the Spirits
S1:Ep727 mins

Of all the peoples of southern Vietnam’s high plateau, the Mnong are among the last to venture into the forest on a regular basis. They do so to capture varanuses, a sort of large lizard, as well as snakes, which they sell to the Vietnamese.

I Kwan, a 10-year-old boy, is going hunting with his father and uncle. For a few days, they will return to their nomadic past, in the heart of the last area of freedom: the forest.
