A hazardous journey along the upper reaches of the Orinoco to one of the most inaccessible tribes on earth.
The Maquiritare are a people renowned throughout the jungle for their extraordinary skills, many of which, like the making of blow-pipes and poisoned arrows, are recorded in this film for the very first time.
It also tells of the delicately balanced relationship between these proud, reserved and suspicious people and HERMAN SCHLENKER who filmed this unique record of their lives. It shows too how dangerous it becomes when so precarious a relationship turns sour. Narrated by GARY WATSON
Filmed by HERMANN SCHLENKER Piesented by COLIN LUKE
