We realised that there are people like Nowaten all around the world: Wisdom Keepers, people who have held on to a connection that most of us have lost. We felt a calling to record Nowaten and medicine people like him on all continents, to share their wisdom with the world. We felt that those Keepers of the Earth might hold the key to a renewed world. But when we asked Nowaten how he felt about being filmed, he didn’t answer. It was almost a year later, on our seventh visit, that he responded to our question. This moment marked the beginning of what would become DOWN to EARTH.
