A film by Werner Herzog.

The Wodaabe tribes consider themselves to be the most beautiful people on earth.
And...I think I must agree.
This is a small subgroup of nomads, who go nuts when it comes to their appearance.
With elaborate make-up, feathers and other adornments, the Wodaabes spend their days charming each other, until their eyes get sore (the beauty ideal of the Wodaabe stresses tallness, white eyes and teeth. They will often roll their eyes and show their teeth to emphasize these characteristics).

The People Of The Taboo (translation for Wodaabe) are sexually liberal (hun?!?!).
Unmarried girls may have sex whenever and with whomever they wish!

Werner Herzog does provoke some controversy, but I can't deny that most of his documentaries are just amazingly interesting!
