Sweetgrass’ work in the jungle provides the introduction for one of the cooler segments in their movie. It is part of a segment that follows Ptor, the lone traveler, as he journeys from the source to the summit. They start deep in the jungle, follow a river all the way upstream to its original mountain source, and proceed to climb that mountain.
