Synopsis

AMAZONIA – The murky waters of Xingu river flow through dense forests, farmlands, native villages and mining sites. What used to be a huge pristine forest is becoming an area with wooded patches. This calls out for the conservation of Amazonia.

In this special, we give voice to its inhabitants. The firemen who struggle everyday to extinguish fires caused by repetitive droughts. The farmers who feel neglected by the government. The meteorologists and scientists who are collecting data in order to understand how the rainforest climate and biodiversity have evolved in such short time.

Last but not the least, the indigenous Walapiti speak openly about their past and present lives and contacts to the White. Through their testimony, this investigative program revives the debate.
