A picture of our existence

We really need more documentaries like this - snapshots of lives we couldn't imagine existed; lives that live in a tradition far older than you or me and continuing still this day. For their rarity and potency such stories are quite important, and very interesting. I wished to briefly review this quality documentary to repeat Common Sense's warning of some rather unexpected content. I hardly consider female upper nudity and full frontal and rear male nudity any part of a family's pastime! In the Grasslands episode, male Ethiopian warriors from the Surma people (if I have my details correct!) compete essentially nude in order to earn respect from family and peoples. Before switching this one on for the kids, consider passing on Grasslands. Aside from such subjects, this John Hurt-narrated short series deserves the attention of young and old alike!
