In the remote southwest region of Madagascar, the Mikea and Vezo peoples coexist in an area of striking isolation. Inland, the Mikea, legendary hunter-gatherers, are being driven from the forest they have called home for generations. Along the coast, the Vezo, barred from traditional fishing, sustain themselves by cultivating seaweed for NGOs.

Both the Mikea and Vezo are resilient communities, grappling with the same profound question: how to preserve their way of life in a world that imposes its own notions of development upon them?

    Do you think local communities should have a more important say in defining what "progress" is? How could they become more involved?

    This is a very important documentary. Natives are the best custodians of nature, not foreign "conservationists".

    I had no idea of this side Madagascar. Why can people leave well enough alone? If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
