Bordering Nepal and Tibet, we find the highest mountains in the world; the Himalayas. This is the home for the Sherpas, from where the first man to climb Mount Everest came from. This documentary follows three brothers, all native to the Himalayas but living completely different lives. 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 The series stands as a historical document of daily life in remote and threatened societies, such as the Cuiva, Embera and Panare Indians of Colombia, the nomadic Tuareg of the Sahara, the Kurdish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.
