Somewhere on this planet, it still exists a secret place isolated from the rest of the world. The last untouched paradise where the first humans are still living the same way from the beginning of humankind. They are the Jarawas. There are only 400 left of them.
Today, our world is going to destroy them…
The story behind the film
« We are Humanity », tells for the first time, the story of the last of the first humans on earth : the Jarawas. They travelled from Africa to Asia, 70,000 years ago. They live in a forgotten place, a forbidden paradise island in India. No one can go there. It’s patrolled 24/7 by the Indian army. We did it. It took us five years.
The Jarawa people have never accepted to be filmed. They granted us an incredible acces. We met with the Jarawas to give them a voice. We filmed their life without seeking to transform it, without staging, and respected them as they are. « We are Humanity » is their unique testimony.
« We are Humanity » is an emotionally driven feature documentary that takes you on an immersive and revealing journey, going back to the original paradise... Re-shaping the documentary genre, the film captures the beginning of humankind, an unique and never seen stunning new film.
