About

A beautiful and alluring film about life in a small rural village, the film focuses on the 'rituals' of everyday life; getting water from the river; making rope by hand from sisal; cooking rice and beans over an outdoor fire; planting and harvesting; etc. A lyrical portrait punctuated by haunting songs, the film is recommended for any audience interested in how another people lives. –K.
