  • Published 5 years ago

The Amazon river is the largest river by discharge of water in the world. According to some authors, the Amazon is the longest river in length. The length of the Amazon is 4,345 miles, spreading through three countries: Brazil, Peru, and Colombia. The river passes through several cities, including Macapa, Parintins, Tefe, Iquitos, Manaus, Amazonas, and many others.

This documentary takes us on a journey through the Amazon, not just the river. We go through the rainforest, the jungle, and the fight between the city and the jungle.

Humans have always craved to conquer the jungle and nature. But what is the cost we pay for that? What is the price we pay for the constant battle between forest and urban life?

Another question the documentary answers is how people live in the subhuman conditions of the rainforest. Do these conditions have consequences for your health? The obvious answer is yes, but just how much.

The documentary focuses on two primary tribes living in the rainforest, the Tikunas and the Kayapo Indians and their lifestyle.
