Quest for Fire takes place some 80,000 years in the past. A primitive
homo sapiens tribe huddles around a natural fire source for comfort and
survival. When that source is extinguished, tribesmen Naoh (Everett McGill),
Amoukar (Ron Perlman), and Gaw (Nameer El-Kadi) are sent out on a "quest for
fire." After several days of wandering through the prehistoric landscape (the
film was shot in Canada, Scotland, Iceland, and Kenya), the three come across a
cannibal tribe that knows how to produce fire; they save a young girl, Ika (Rae
Dawn Chong), from the clutches of the cannibals, with the hope that she'll
reveal the secret. Based on a novel by J. H. Rosny Sr., Quest for Fire
convincingly creates the world of the past and believably molds its characters
within the context of their surroundings and their limited knowledge of the
world. The credibility factor is aided by technical consultants Desmond Morris
and Anthony Burgess, who respectively developed a set of gestures and a
simplistic language for the Ulams and Ivakas. An Oscar went to John Hay and
Penny Rose's costume design.
