An encounter between our “civilised” world and the brutal reality of people living in the magnificent splendour of the Rain Forest.

In 1968 film director Torgny Anderberg contacted the “lost” Ashaninka Indians deep in the Peruvian Rain Forest. This tribe had lived in harmony with the environment for 500 years. Anderberg befriended them and was accepted as a brother.

In 1997 he returned. This time only a shadow of the Ashaninka’s nobility remained. Trapped and exploited by the Shining Path and the drug barons, the Ashaninka Indians pray for their forest and homeland to be left in peace.

For the Ashaninka Indians it would have been better to remain lost, than found and degraded by outsiders who would destroy a centuries-old way of life.
