“Civilized man refused to adapt himself to his environment; instead, he adapted his environment to suit him.”

Free in US only? Not sure.

“It’s really just an interesting psychological phenomenon.”

Just watched, thanks to Crackle, the below sponsor (no commercials, thank you twice!)…just watched this beautiful, funny, educational movie for the first time since I was a boy, and I watched it in theaters, with my ma.

A Sho in the Kalahari desert encounters technology for the first time–in the shape of a Coke bottle. He takes it back to his people, and they use it for many tasks. The people start to fight over it, so he decides to return it to the God–where he thinks it came from. Meanwhile, we are introduced to a school teacher assigned to a small village, a despotic revolutionary, and a clumsy biologist.
