In search of employment, tribal communities move to a town in the south of Palawan Island in the Philippines. But when their quest yields unsatisfactory results, members of Tau’t Batu, a tribe from a bygone era, discovered only in 1978, decide to return to live in the jungle. They have historically lived in caves in the depths of the forest. Explorer and filmmaker Jean-Michel Corillion’s The Last Cavemen follows members of the Tau’t Batu tribe to where they live like their ancestors did: hidden in giant caves, fishing, and hunting bats.
