Six years after the first visit of the film crew to the Arhuaco Indians it returns to present the first film »The Earth Is Our Mother«, as was agreed upon at that time. The Indians are very reserved as regards comments on the Europeans' film, and this time they decide to give the film crew a message to bring back to the world - a message which they express in front of the camera.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
