CHASSEURS DES TéNèBRES
France / 1990 / 30'
In the Andamane archipelago, south of Thailand, some men climb the fragile structures in the dark grottos to pull the swallows' nest out of the ravine walls. For the Chinese these nests are a great delicacy and therefore very expensive. For six months the nest hunters pass from one islad to another and climb caves up to 100 m high risking their lives all the time.
A great poem on controversial documentary on the attempts to survive by a tribe of nomadic hunters living in the forest and the so-called ‘civil’ world of Columbia in an atmosphere more criminal than the wild West.
