This award-winning ethnographic documentary film made by Sathya Mohan PV, deals with the socio-economic and religious life of the Chenchus, the only Telugu speaking prehistoric hunting-gathering tribe living in the Nallamalai forests of Andhra Pradesh, India. They are a conservative tribal group and have not made many changes in their lifestyle or tried to adapt to modernity. They live in the enclosed space and geography leading a life of an unbroken continuity. This film won a Golden Nandi Award (First Best Documentary Film) in 2003 and a Special Mention Award in the Mumbai International Film Festival 2004 for "portraying an ancient Indian tribe in a sensitive manner". The film was screened in the 18th Parnu International Documentary and Anthropology Film Festival (2004), Estonia and in the 8th International Documentary Film Festival Jihlava 2004 (Czech Republic).
