“This is Madu of the Bajo tribe. His name means honey.”
I shot this footage about a year ago around the Taka Bonerate atoll.
Madu is a Bajo tribesman. He’s completely self-sufficient in his element with minimal effort.
I didn’t know what to do with this footage.
Then Camilla asked me if the reason I liked Madu so much was because that’s who I want to be when I grow up. I didn’t think about it that way but it made sense. Madu is a hero to me.
This isn’t a documentary, just a glimpse of what it means to live a good life:
To laugh often, to have a large family, fish and live in nature without leaving a trace.
