The Dreamtribe presents the dream culture of the Temiar Senoi indigenous people of Malaysia. Allowing their waking lives to be guided by their dreams, the Temiar Senoi live in peace and harmony. The tribe does not engage in violence or warfare, and is free of the problems of mental illness that plague the so called more civilized cultures. The dominant culture of Malaysia has sought to impose its world view on the Temiar Senoi through state run religious and education programs. A massive logging operation threatens to destroy the rainforest in which the tribe lives. Temiar Senoi guide Awin Pedik takes the viewer on this compelling look into the extraordinary dreamworld culture of his people.
