Mock Squid Soup: April's Three Clues


Today, for this month's edition of Mock Squid Soup, all society members are invited to post three hints about their film choice for the month.  All are welcome to guess, of course.  My three clues:

- This documentary travels the world from a village in Central Africa to the urban slums of South America to the Orkney Islands and on and on, connecting all of humanity through a passion that has been an important of my own life and certainly the early days of my blog.

- It also takes us on a journey through time all the way back to the origins of our species.  The discovery of rubber by Europeans is a pivotal moment in the story.

- I will be both shocked and delighted if any of you have seen this film or even heard of it.  If you know something of what my family has been up to this past month, you might have a shot at guessing.  I can't wait to discuss it further with everyone and hope I can inspire a few to seek it out.

Any guesses?  Society reviews will be posted next Friday, April 8th.  See you then.  Meanwhile, please visit my fellow cinephiles today:

  1. Sorry I'm late. My post should go up shortly.

    I don't know what this movie is, but I'm looking forward to finding out. I never used to appreciate documentaries, but as I get older I see how informative they can be as well as beautiful.

    1. No worries. Looks like it's just me and you this month anyway.

      Documentaries have also gotten better. I think a lot of the most interesting filmmaking is happening in what the Academy might consider down-ballot genres.

  2. Nope I will be a day late due to work, mom and the A to Z but I will. Post mine tomorrow. I have no clue as to what film you are speaking of.

    1. Oh good. I'm looking forward to your post.

      Really, I would be very surprised if anyone can guess my choice this month. Possible but unlikely.

    1. I think it's fair to say we've binged on films over the past few weeks.

  5. It sounds expansive so it'll be exciting whatever it is. For fun I'll say Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. Hopefully I'm wrong.

    1. LOL! Best guess ever. Alas, it is incorrect.
