<p>Linguist Ian Mackenzie has tracked the last true nomadic hunting and gathering people on earth &#8212; the Penan of Borneo. Their way of life is quickly disappearing as aggressive logging interests swallow up their forest habitat. Mackenzie has spent years compiling the very first dictionary of the unique Penan language, &nbsp;a language that has words for every forest plant and creature, a language that is a window into an entirely different way of seeing the world. It is also a language on the edge of disappearing. A beautiful, but heart-breaking look at a singular people on the brink of obliteration.</p> <p>"...gorgeously made, heartfelt and hushed." John Doyle, Globe and Mail<br> <span>"...a fascinating look at a people on the brink." Raju Mudhar, Toronto Star<br> Grand Prize, Banff Mountain Film Festival (2008)</span></p>
