Children of the Amazon

In this video, filmmaker Denise Zmekhol returns to the Amazon and revisits the indigenous children she photographed there fifteen years ago. See how we’re linked to the Amazon rainforest via climate and by the water, carbon and oxygen cycles. And who is affected by changes there and who has the right to influence those changes?

Children of the Amazon invites you to see through the eyes of these inspiring, remarkably resilient people whose lives are transformed by a road carved through their forest home by an outside world. From Chief Amir Surui’s embattled efforts to stop illegal loggers to the assassination of legendary rubber tapper Chico Mendes, this poetic and visually stunning film engages our senses and sympathies as global issues take on a profound human perspective.
