I agree with you DisturbedToo and was glad that someone spoke up. Some poster screams FAKE and everyone falls in line. I want to see proof as well. The link was to the Talasday - who aren't even from the same country nor are they the same race, I mean come on.
I for one need hard evidence that it was faked. Mostly because I don't get to see such touching moments in human history very often and I want it so much to be real. I'm going to (in between work today "uhh") look up some further information on the subject tribe and video footage.
Huet's article refers above all to a critical text, concerning the video, signed conjointly by ten anthropologists attached to prestigious French organizations such as the CNRS [National Center for Scientific Research]. One of these critics, Pierre Lemonnier, was a French specialist in the Papua New Guinea domain. He exclaimed: "I'm outraged!" Lemonnier described the Dutilleux production as "untruthful, racist, revolting". Apparently Lemonnier recognized immediately the place where the fake "first encounter" had been filmed. The stream is known as New Year Creek, and the members of the "unknown tribe" probably walked for about a day, from their settlement, to reach the appointed well-lit meeting-place… which had been conveniently cleared for the filming, with a few logs thrown into the creek so that the natives could emerge confidently from the jungle (most unusual behavior) and move naively towards the camera crew. Lemonnier adds: "At that spot, they were about a four-day walk from an administrative center with a school teacher, an airstrip, radio, nurse and Seventh-Day Adventist preachers. Nearby, the navigable river Vailala enables the Papuans to reach the coast, where they exchange bark capes for tools."

Wow. Look at their eyes and you can see, they are no less intelligent then we are. They only have less information.
Dutilleux, for its part, has maintained his story "If Toulambis are actors, they must provide a Caesar," he said.
