Le 12 avril, le film a été projeté en avant-première au Musée des arts asiatiques-Guimet. Ensuite, Claire Beilvert, la productrice et Alexandre Dereims, le réalisateur, ont signé, en présence de Corinne Lepage, la Déclaration Universelle des Droits de l’Humanité, une étape essentielle pour la reconnaissance et la défense des droits humains de ce peuple extraordinaire. 

Le débat animé par Nicolas Imbert de Green Cross a réuni l'équipe du film autour de Jean-Louis Servan-Schreiber, de Corinne Lepage et de Célia Blauel adjointe au maire de Paris.

Corinne Lepage a déclaré face à l'assistance que l'assimilation forcée des Jarawas est un crime contre l'Humanité. Nous le pensons depuis longtemps mais cela nous a conforté dans notre combat de voir Mme Lepage, ancienne ministre et défenseur farouche des droits humains le déclarer. Jean-Louis Servan-Schreiber, fondateur de l'Express, a parlé du film avec beaucoup d'enthousiasme. "Un film craquant et magnifique".

Un vent de d'optimisme et un esprit...

Auf einer Insel im Indischen Ozean leben die Jarawa wie Abgesandte aus einer früheren Zeit. Als eines der wenigen verbliebenen Urvölker pflegen sie ihre Lebensweise als Jäger und Sammler – fröhlich, friedlich und im Einklang mit der Natur. Der französische Regisseur Alexandre Dereims durfte sich diesem Volk nähern und erzählt die Geschichte eines bedrohten Paradieses und seiner Bewohner in ruhigen, eindrucksvollen Bildern.

Excellent article by Cosmic Yoruba

This is Africa (TIA), an online newspaper in Nigeria, a leading forum for African 

opinion, lifestyle, arts and music.

Read there the whole article:

https://thisisafrica.me/dont-need-world-jarawa-peoples-fight-self-determination/

Some extracts from the article:

"Few know the story of the Jarawa people. On seeing their dark skin and Afro-textured hair, one might wonder how they got to Asia, but the Jarawa and others who look like them can be found in several south and south-east Asian countries. Following the “Out Of Africa” theory of human evolution, modern humans stem from a single group of Homo sapiens who emigrated from Africa and populated the world. The Jarawa are said to be descended from some of the first humans to leave Africa.

“No one ever told us where we came from,” says Telo, a Jarawa man who appears in the documentary We Are Humanity. “I don’t know; maybe we reached here by boat.” Director Alexandre Dereims bel...

Despite the recent arrests, during the last months, more and more poachers have been entering the Jarawa territory to hunt illegally their game. They are harassing the Jarawa communities, giving them tobacco and alcohol. Clock is ticking, the Jarawa people are more at risk than ever.

http://www.canindia.com/increasing-trespassing-poaching-in-andamans-tribal-reserves-may-wipe-out-the-natives-august-9-is-international-day-of-the-indigenous-peoples/

The Jarawa’s territory is patrolled 24/7 by the Indian army and no one can enter there without the complicity of the Andaman authorities. But lot of poachers go on hunting and starving the Jarawas. Wild meat is sold in the Indian local markets.

The Indian government ignore the Jarawa’s call for self-determination. They have opened special school to « educate » them. They said they will give them bananas to make them go to these schools. There is no policy to protect the Jarawa people. The local government has decided to build a railway trough the...

This week, on their facebook page, Women's March Global have shared the story of the Jarawa people and the outreach campaign to keep them safe.

" Meet Etalay of the Jarawa people.

For our next installment of Season of Love: Celebrating Activism we are sharing the story of an indigenous people threatened by tourism and development in India. Over the course of the week we will share the story of the Jarawa people and their fight to their right to live their life.

The Jarawa are one of the last afro-Asians people of the world. These hunters-gatherers are living in the Andaman Islands, in India, for thousands and thousands of years. According to recent studies, they are believed to have taken part in the very first human migrations from Africa to the rest of the world, some 70,000 years ago. And they first encountered Indian citizens only a decade ago.

Since then, the Andaman islands had become the top touristic destination. Indian government wants to...

The Indian government and his local representative, Bishnu Pada Ray, have definitely crossed the red line by opening five « schools » for the Jarawa people. They call it « Hotspot » and 150 Jarawas kids will be forced to attend to Ongan language courses. Arun Kumar Jha, the Executive Secretary of the AAJV, the government body in charge of the protection of the Jarawas said : « To prevent any drop-outs we have started distributing bananas to students. » Yes, they give them bananas…

The Jarawa people are already threaten by poachers who hunt illegally their game, with the complicity of the forest guards who work for the AAJV. Jarawas women have kidnapped and raped. Children have died because of wrong medication given by Indian doctors. The economical development of the Andaman Islands is on tracks with a brand new harbor, the biggest in the Indian Ocean to be built soon and the opening...

«We did it!»

When we started this project five years ago, we didn’t know if we would finish it one day. The challenges were so high and the difficulties were so big. In our previous documentaries, we secretly filmed the North Korean refugees across China, we shared the African migrants daily life in the Tenere desert during their trip to Europe. But, filming the Jarawa people was our biggest challenge ever. Traveling there is almost impossible...

The Jarawas are one of the last of the first humans living on earth. They left Africa to Asia 70,000 years ago. Up to now, they had managed to shelter themselves from the madness of our world. Today, they are no more than 400 people still living in the Andaman islands of India. Because of corruption and racism, they are victims of poachers and tourists. The Indian government is responsible for their safety but they are not protected. It’s forbidden to access the Jarawa’s territory but the local authorities have set up a «safari tour» inside thei...
