Great Documentary - Made with Sensitivity & Heart!

Created: 08/09/08
After watching Worlds Lost Tribes - Living with the Mek, I was curious to find out more about the first expedition, Living with the Kombai. I was over the moon when I managed to locate this item on ebay!

I love the way this documentary is made. With sensitivity and with heart. It was endearing to watch 2 westerners (who were in over their heads most of the time) trying to live as one with the tribe, learning their ways, their skills and their language. You get to enjoy their interaction with the tribe as well as with one another. These 2 men are so different in their approach and demeanour, it’s no wonder that they occasionally rub each other the wrong way!

For Mark Anstice - the journey is a personal one. He wants to learn how to survive in the jungle and he looks to the Kombai to teach him these precious skills. Oliver Steeds on the other hand is interested in the Kombai people themselves, getting to know them individually and spending more time trying to understand their culture and beliefs. With only approximately 4000 Kombai left, it is only a matter of time before they disappear – most likely through absorption into the modern world that is fast approaching.

The Kombai, are truly amazing people, kindly, warm, generous, strong and resilient. In an environment that can be truly inhospitable at times, they show us how important family is and how working together is crucial for survival. While we may find their beliefs, practices and even their food strange and alien – our hosts remind us through their own behavior and reaction to events that having an open mind and being non judgmental is the first step to understanding and appreciating the uniqueness of the Kombai culture, or any other culture for that matter.

I have only one complaint about this set of dvds. The documentary consists of 6 episodes and was originally made to be shown on television via the Discovery Channel. Where the film breaks for adverts (as on tv – but in this case it immediately resumes) the image gets a little bit ‘skippy’ for a split second, making you think that the disc has stalled in your player! Minus this one irritation – this is a great watch! A must for everyone (parental guidance needed due to the indigenous nudity) who wants to experience how other cultures live!
