A Proposal For a 12 Part Television Series
Producers: Jean-Pierre Dutilleux and Alexandre Bouchet/Yemaya, Paris
Executive Producer: Derek Power, Los Angeles and London
“Tribes are like stars in the sky, identical from a distance but up close,
all are different, unique strands in the extraordinary tapestry that forms humanity.”
Prepare to encounter twelve tribes, from headhunters and cannibals to gentle ﬁshing people and hunter gatherers all intimately known to world renowned ethnographer, photographer and Oscar-nominated ﬁlmmaker Jean-Pierre Dutilleux.
Decades in the ﬁeld have taken Dutilleux beyond the role of ethnographer to conscience awakener. His friendship with The First People – the tribal world on ﬁve continents – can be summed up in this singular truth: In order to sustain a relationship or indeed this planet, you must revere it. And in order to love anything well you must know it intimately. And so we must listen to the First People.
