For 500 years the indigenous people of the Amazon have defended their homeland against the invasion that has brought the mass extinction of over 700 tribes and destruction of the rainforests in which they live. Amazonia gives voice to these native people, as well as the riverine dwellers, rubber tappers, and small farmers, all of whom depend on the rainforests along the Amazon River.. This uniquely crafted film blends vivid first-person accounts of the struggle for survival in the forests with stunning cinematography. Original music score by famed Brazilian composer Egberto Gismonti..
