A prophetic message to the industrialized world.
The documentary show an ancient Kogi tribe civilization (the Elder Brother) who emerge to offer their concern for people of the modern world (Younger Brother). Younger Brother is urged to change or suffer environmental disaster. After offering the warning the Kogi retreat back to civilization hidden in a mountain in Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia.
Seeing themselves as guardians of life on earth, the Kogi have a profound spiritual understanding of the bond between humankind and the natural world – a bond that, they insist, must be respected. This powerful film stands as an especially cogent and moving plea for ecological wisdom.
