Vivamazonia

by Francesco Cannito Documentary Brasile/Brasil, Italia/Italy 2010 55'

In the heart of the Amazon, on the Rio Jauperì, in an area neglected by the authorities and plagued by illiteracy and incidence of malaria, there is a small rural school, Vivamazonia, founded a decade ago by volunteer teachers without government aid. The students learn to read and write and appreciate their unique surroundings. For only the natives can protect and preserve this natural heritage against the threat of profit, economic exploitation, destruction, and loss of means of survival.<%YOUTUBE=tGU-ZbR6k2M%>
