    This was a fascinating doc.
    Beautiful scenery, squalid slums and the traditional music were a feast for my senses.
    A history was recounted, explaining a way of life that was simplistic, disturbing and empowering, all at different points throughout this film.
    I tried my best to not allow my Westernized thinking to prejudice me against this small, impoverished society.
    I found this story so interesting and I highly recommend it.
