Haenyeo, is an ancient culture of women free-divers from an island off the coast of South Korea, as they dive for valuable shellfish. 80% of the dwindling Haenyeo culture today are over the age of 60. Within 15-20 years the Haenyeo will have disappeared.
In 2016, UNESCO designated the Haenyeo an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

2020 Arkhaios Film Festival Grand Prize

Long before the arrival of Homo sapiens, the Neanderthals wander the vast European plains, regularly drowned into the Ice Ages.

Several discoveries, in France and England, and especially on the island of Jersey, now allow the archaeologists to understand the lifestyle of those first great nomads of Europe, that lasted 300 000 years.
