We asked them to react to images of our world of which they are so mistrustful.
0:05
0:05
We showed them the worst and the best.
0:08
0:09
At midday, they invited us to gather in the men's hut where women are forbidden.
0:14
0:18
Have you seen these images before?
0:19
0:20
No, never.
0:20
0:21
Did you know that the white man had been to the moon?
0:23
0:24
Yes, we heard about it.
0:25
0:26
But why did you go there? What did you hope to find there?
0:28
0:29
What is the point of humans going there?
0:31
0:32
How do you feel about man walking on the moon?
0:35
0:37
It worries us.
0:38
0:38
The moon was created far from the earth so that we couldn't touch it.
0:41
0:43
The moon is there to provide light at night.
0:44
0:46
There were never as many eclipses before.
0:48
0:48
You must have disturbed it.
0:50
0:52
We've noticed changes here. It's getting warmer and warmer.
0:55
0:55
There is less cool air than before.
0:57
0:57
With your technology, you will kill the moon.
0:59
1:00
These are our gardens.
1:02
1:02
French style gardens.
1:03
1:03
What do you think of these gardens in comparison to the forest that you are used to?
1:07
1:09
It's not good what you do to your plants.
1:10
1:12
You are hurting them by cutting them this way.
1:14
1:15
We believe plants have a spirit.
1:16
1:18
It is wrong to treat them like this.
1:19
1:20
Cutting a tree is to make it suffer.
1:22
1:23
When we uproot trees for our cassava plantations we are sad.
1:26
1:27
The plants that you cut and trim, if you did not water them they would likely die.
1:32
1:35
Do you know what this is?
1:36
1:37
It's called snow.
1:38
1:40
In cold countries, icy white particles fall from the sky and men glide on them.
1:47
1:57
This is a white man's war. This is how white men go to war.
2:00
2:01
What do you think about this when you still use bows and arrows?
2:05
2:06
When we kill an animal, we feel sorry for it.
2:08
2:08
Can you imagine how we'd feel about a human?
2:10
2:11
What do you kill for? To eat?
2:13
Unless it is part of your culture?
2:16
2:16
But you have also gone to war with other tribes.
2:19
2:20
Yes but it's not the same thing.
2:22
2:22
You white men go to war to take something from this earth.
2:25
2:26
Not us.
2:26
2:29
It's true, our ancestors did go to war like he said.
2:33
2:33
A child or a woman was stolen from us.
2:36
2:37
We would attack the tribe with our bows and arrows to steal a child or a woman.
2:41
2:45
But without killing the whole community or destroying everything with bombs like you do.
2:48
It's completely different. It's a form of trade.
2:51
2:52
You steal from me, I steal from you.
2:54
2:55
In fact, those who went to war were generally the cannibal Indians.
2:58
3:12
Do you recognise him?
3:13
3:14
Does the Chief know who this is?
3:16
3:16
No, we don't know him.
3:17
3:17
Zidane is a French football player. One of the most famous players in the world.
3:21
I wanted to know if Zidane could reach out as far as your tribe. Obviously not.
3:24
3:24
And do you know him?
3:27
3:35
Do you know who this is?
3:36
3:36
Michael Jackson.
3:37
3:38
How do you know?
3:38
I saw him once on TV in the town.
3:40
How many of you know him?
3:43
3:45
Do the elders know him?
3:46
3:47
No, we don't know him.
3:48
3:49
Never heard of him.
3:50
3:50
He is considered to be the greatest superstar in the world.
3:53
3:53
They say that wherever you might be in the world, someone knows Michael Jackson.
3:57
3:57
Even in your tribe the young people know him.
4:00
4:08
It's the 11th of September. Two planes crash into towers in New York.
4:11
4:12
Would someone like to comment?
4:14
4:20
It's like the evil witches we have here. Those people have no mercy for anyone.
4:23
4:24
The people who did this have no heart and they don't even know who they are killing.
4:28
4:30
This is what we do with our old people.
4:31
4:32
In France, when people are too old, we put them in homes without their families and children.
4:38
4:38
What do you do with your old people?
4:40
4:41
For us the elders are sacred.
4:42
4:43
We really look after them.
4:44
4:45
We never abandon them.
4:46
4:47
They are our ancestors. We assist them.
4:49
4:50
The family cares for them until the end. There is no separate place for old people here.
4:55
4:56
We have to remember everything they have done for us.
4:59
From our birth, right up to our adult life.
5:01
5:02
These images sadden me. This would never happen here.
5:05
5:10
In France, when we want to tell a woman we love her, we kiss her on the mouth.
5:14
Do you do this too?
5:19
We never kiss on the mouth.
5:20
5:22
We talk and learn to get to know each other.
5:24
5:26
Then we see if it works.
5:27
5:28
How do you tell a woman you love her?
5:30
5:30
What signs do you show to let her know that you love her?
5:32
5:35
We take a woman in our arms and caress her.
5:37
If she doesn't refuse, it's ok.
5:39
5:40
Otherwise she pushes us away.
5:42
5:44
In the west, we had to create this drug to stop us from having children.
5:47
5:47
Have you heard of this?
5:49
5:49
We don't need to take medicine. We have what we need in the forest.
5:53
5:54
We even have plants that help with abortions in the first stages of pregnancy.
5:58
5:59
In some parts of the world, women dress like this.
6:02
6:10
Their husbands must be very jealous.
6:11
6:13
Aren't they warm dressed like that?
6:14
6:15
Your women live nude. How do you feel about these veils?
6:18
6:20
But how do they wash?
6:20
6:22
Do they have to stay like this inside their homes?
6:24
6:25
Are they allowed to take the clothes off or not?
6:27
6:27
After all, if it's their culture.
6:29
7:25
We have a lot of respect for singers that have the confidence to sing alone in front of others.
7:29
When the audience listens, it feels a deep solitude.
7:33
7:34
What do the young warriors think about Las Callas?
7:36
7:39
Does someone want to answer?
7:40
7:41
I will speak for the young ones.
7:43
7:44
This music is not our culture.
7:47
7:47
We do not know what it means. We can only watch and listen.
7:52
7:53
But it is touching.
7:54
7:56
I find it overwhelming.
7:58
7:58
Without understanding her, we can sense something sacred.
8:00
8:03
You all look magnificent with your customs and your rituals.
8:06
8:07
When you see images of the world, are you frightened of being consumed by it?
8:12
8:16
Of course, we are very worried.
8:17
8:18
If we allowed you to film us, it is so you can show the white people who we are.
8:22
8:24
We are extremely anxious for the future of our children.
8:27
8:27
How will they live?
8:29
8:29
We feel the pressure of the white man building up all around us and our forest.
8:33
8:33
Like it or not, we will resist and fight, so that you do not pollute our earth.
