In Sarawak, one of the two Malaysian states on the island of Borneo, the Penan – who not that long ago were still nomads – are the first to be affected by deforestation. In this documentary thriller imbued with indigenous mystique, Parietti and Ponson recount the saga of Peng and Tepeket, hunter-storytellers, who, with their archaic bows and arrows, stood up to the bulldozers.
