Movie Info

The Garos are a tribe of indigenous people living in Meghalaya, a part of Northeastern India that has for the most part been untouched by the innovations of the 20th century. The Garos support themselves by growing rice, and they still fashion most of their homes and household needs from bamboo that grows in the wilds. Despite the presence of nearby skirmishes and the growing influence of modern-day culture, the Garos still live much as they did two centuries ago, and filmmaker Dinaz Stafford brought a camera crew to their village to bring a glimpse of their fading culture to the outside world. Still, the Children Are Here examines the day to day lives of the Garos and shows how their lives are largely guided by the same emotions and dilemmas as those of their more "advanced" brethren, as well as offering a glimpse of the rare flora and fauna to be found in Meghalaya.

Critic Reviews for Still, the Children Are Here

All Critics (1)

It appears to be objective documentary, one that observes without comment as a kind of visual anthropology ... see it, and appreciate your meal afterward, you big fat American.
