Movie Synopsis:

The Marquis de Wavrin was the first white man to encounter many of the Amazonian Indians, including the "head shrinking" Shuar Indians, at the end of the 1920s. Over 6000 metres of footage filmed between 1920 and 1938, many of now lost tribes, led to his becoming a renowned explorer and ethnographer. This documentary weaves together archival footage, beautiful photographs and anthropological films. De Wavrin was not only one of the pioneers of visual anthropology, but also genuinely interested in the indigenous people he documented.
