Sep 27, 2023 | Environmental, Videos

Expedito and Raimondo are brothers. Their lives are inextricably linked to a legendary river: the Paraguaçu and their boat, a saveiro that looks like it’s straight out of a swashbuckling adventure book.

The Lençois de Maranhenses is a bewitching sight. Only a few men live in this desert where time itself has evaporated. Joyoson is right at home in the Lençois.

Roy landed in Brazil about 30 years ago, in the Chapada Diamantina. He has become the ardent defender of a vast territory where he roams every day.

Somewhere on Earth, off the coast of Brazil, lies a land of adventure and mystery. Two brothers, Expedito and Raimondo, take the viewer on an unforgettable journey down the legendary Paraguaçu River in their saveiro boat. The sparkling waters are dotted with tropical islands and breathtakingly beautiful bays – all captured in a documentary that follows these two adventurers as they explore this enchanting paradise.

The Lençois de Maranhenses is one of the most dramatic sights in all of Brazil. It’s an enormous desert dune field spanning up to 40 km wide and covering a staggering 1550 square kilometers. Only a few men live here, where time itself appears to have been frozen in time. Joyoson is one such man who has made this incredible land his home for more than 30 years now; he is our guide throughout the documentary as he leads us across rivers and through winding paths filled with lush vegetation.

This remarkable landscape is also home to another protagonist: Roy, a man from outside who landed in Brazil about 30 years ago and has since become a passionate protector of its vast territory. He roams around every day, giving us unique insights into the beauty of nature and providing us with memorable moments throughout our journey.
