People the Size of a Fist – Part 2: Children of the Forest

Beyond the Passage of Time
S1:Ep725 mins2009

In this continuing look, the crew documented the traditional lifestyle of the Baka Pygmies based on harmony with nature – a lifestyle that gives them every right to call themselves “children of the forest.” They still use spears and nets for hunting, cure their sick with ointments made of burned crust, water and animal fat and recount to their children the same legends their grandparents heard when young. The film includes an elephant hunt and a look into secrets kept by the Pygmies for thousands of years.
