This award-winning ethnographic documentary film made by Sathya Mohan PV, deals with the socio-economic and religious life of the Chenchus, the only Telugu speaking prehistoric hunting-gathering tribe living in the Nallamalai forests of Andhra Pradesh, India. They are a conservative tribal group and have not made many changes in their lifestyle or tried to adapt to modernity. They live in the enclosed space and geography leading a life of an unbroken continuity.

I am an ethnographic filmmaker engaged in visually exploring and documenting the fast disappearing tribal and rural traditions of India. Apart from anthropology, I am into metaphysics and shamanism investigating the nature of Multiverse and the contemporary crisis of planet Earth.

The sole intent of this channel is of an educational nature for the benefit and the enrichment of the people.

The Chenchus are one of the last remaining tribes in India. They live a hand-to-mouth existence in the forest but attempts to integrate them in society have failed. For centuries, the Chenchus have survived as hunter-gatherers. They have no food preservation techniques and no interest in material wealth. But the Chenchus’ traditional forest homeland has recently been declared a tiger sanctuary. Attempts to turn the Chenchus into farmers failed. They refuse to leave their forest and are struggling to adapt to new lifestyles.
