The documentary series “Disappearing World” was originally broadcasted between 1970-1993. 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 The series stands as a historical document of daily life in remote and threatened societies, such as the Cuiva, Embera, and Panare Indians of Colombia, the nomadic Tuareg of the Sahara, the Kurdish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.
