More than half the people on our planet live beyond the Web, unrepresented and excluded, their lives invisible, their words unheard. At the most they count only as a statistic in a catastrophe. This unique film about landless peasants in northeast Brazil, lives as a neighbour with a handful of such people. It listens to their jokes, their confessions, their anger, their complaints, and it joins in their games. More than that, it comes to love them. An unforgettable traveller's tale, a thousand kilometres away from tourism.

John Berger
