About the film

Tawai is the word the nomadic hunter gatherers of Borneo use to describe their inner feeling of connection to nature. In this dreamy, philosophical and sociological look at life, explorer Bruce Parry travels the world to learn from people living lives very different to our own. From the jungles of Malaysia to the tributaries of the Amazon, TAWAI is a quest for reconnection, providing a powerful voice from the heart of the forest itself.

What the evening includes

This very special evening will begin at 6pm, where you’ll be guided through the Rainforest Biome in small groups by the Eden team. On the journey, you’ll meet special guests, including Bruce himself, who have all dedicated their lives to meeting, learning about, and saving the plants and people of the world’s forests. 

At 7.30pm, we’ll gather together in the Gallery for a screening of the film, followed by a Q&A with Bruce.

Your ticket grants you free entry to Eden on the day, so please arrive as early as you like and take time to immerse yourself in Eden’s Rainforest Biome. Canapes, made with plants from rainforest regions, are also included and there will also be a cash bar in both the Rainforest Biome and Gallery.

As you’ll be spending a significant time in the rainforest we strongly recommend you bring your own water to stay hydrated. 

Proceeds from this evening will be shared between Survival International and the Eden Project.

More about Bruce Parry

Bruce is an ex-Royal Marine who has spent his entire life exploring the Earth and immersing himself in forest communities. His adventures were made famous in the acclaimed BBC series 'TRIBE'. Bruce then shied away from the BBC spotlight and turned his attention to truly and independently telling the story of forest peoples. He hopes you enjoy TAWAI and that it makes you think differently about forests and the people that live in them.
