The Quechua live in an isolated part of Peru where, unlike the Mehinacu hundreds of miles to the east, they desperately want a road to link them with civilization and all its benefits—such as tourist trade.
The documentary series “Disappearing World” was originally broadcasted between 1970-1975.
As an anthropological landmark of its time, the series tells the story of traditional communities endangered by the modern world’s progressions.
The series stands as a historical document of daily life in remote and threatened societies, such as the Cuiva, Embera and Panare Indians of Colombia, the nomadic Tuareg of the Sahara, the Kurdish Dervishes, and the Meo of China.
