Raid on the Amazon

In production – 52 minutes

This film follows the emerging awareness of a recent phenomenon: multinationals using peoples as pawns.

Synopsis

Once a month, Ronaldo, who gathers nuts for a living, leaves his ecological reserve to go to Manaus, the capital of Amazonas state in Brazil. Accompanying him on his journey along the Amazon River and showing the different people he meets on his way, the film reflects the growing awareness of a recent phenomenon: exploitation of local peoples by multinationals.

Raid on the Amazon gives a mouthpiece to scientists and intellectuals of the Amazon to understand how, with the complicity of NGOs, international businesses are manipulating environmental policies to generate profits while continuing to pollute with impunity.
