Amazing Video Footage


#1

I just watched this amazing video of a tribe meeting people from the civilized world for the first time ever. I thought it was quite amazing to see how they reacted to objects(and white pople for that matter) from our "world".


#2

That is very, very cool. Love this kind of footage.

I love how they appear to try to remove the 'white' from his skin, as if it's paint.


#3

Might as well introduce them to Wii and Doritos and get it over with. Maybe throw in a how-to on the Zerche..... nevermind.


#4

I wonder why they knock the back/side of their heads when eating?

This was filmed in Papua New Guinea in 1976, BTW. I wonder how much we've ruined them since.


#5

It's a gesture litteraly meaning "Good". I found this video on reddit, there is more information in this thread, if you're interested.

Also found this video(which is a summary of a docu)

About sudanese refugees comming to America. Has some interesting thing to say.

Awsome stuff... Is this what ID was trying to post in that other thread? lol


#7

I think so. He just posted the night footage.


#8

I had some issues posting this thread..

Quote from Reddit:

I believe the correct translation to be "This shit is BANGIN'!"

HAHHAHAHAHA!

Seriously though, good stuff - I'll check it out later, more work to do right now.


#10

Wouldn't interacting with them introduce them to possible diseases their bodies wouldn't be able to defend itself against?


#11

C'mon, it's not like we're going to give them small-pox infested blankets or anything...


#12

Man, I would love to see the whole documentary (without the gay Moby soundtrack)


#13

Thought provoking shit, that's for sure.


#14

Seriously. The footage is great, but I'd rather watch it with the actual audio than this Enya sounding crap lol.


#15

As a Star Trek fan I must admit I saw several flagrant violations of the Prime Directive there.
