TAWAI is the word the nomadic hunter gatherers of Borneo use to describe their inner feeling of connection to nature. In this dreamy, philosophical and sociological look at life, explorer Bruce Parry travels the world to learn from people living lives very different to our own. From the jungles of Malaysia to the tributaries of the Amazon, TAWAI is a quest for re-connection, providing a powerful voice from the heart of the forest itself.

"It's sincere, thought-provoking and gives you space to meditate on its message."
Anna Smith - TIME OUT

"An empathetic, sumptuously filmed homage to indigenous groups, particularly the Penan, a Bornean community that is held up by anthropologists as a model of a peaceful and egalitarian society."
- THE GUARDIAN

"The result is a quietly astounding film, in which Parry confronts the on going issue of deforestation, and asks what we can still learn from peoples such as the Penan, whose lives are so different from our own."
- TELEGRAPH

"Parry makes for an amiable travelling companion. Will his unabashed tree-hugging translate at a moment of peak climate-change denial? We do hope so. "
Tara Brady - IRISH TIMES
