Hijos de la tierra

Earth's Children | Kinder der Erde
Early in the morning, young Jorge sets off with his machete to harvest bananas, making every blow count. After the bananas have been boiled it’s time for breakfast. After that, Jorge and his friends are free to wander the lush vegetation that surrounds their home – climbing, having fun, singing harvest songs and splashing about in the headwaters of the Amazon. Seen through the eyes of children, these everyday scenes describe the peaceful lives of an indigenous village community in the midst of their primeval environment. Here, everyone helps to grow food. There’s not much left over to sell, but money wouldn’t appear to be the most important thing anyway.
