Brazil, USA 2008 • Documentary • 72 minutes
Directed by Denise Zmekhol
“Children of the Amazon” follows Brazilian filmmaker Denise Zmekhol as she travels a modern highway deep into the Amazon in search of the Indigenous Surui and Negarote children she photographed fifteen years ago. Part road movie, part time travel, her journey tells the story of what happened to life in the largest forest on Earth when a road was built straight through its heart. Zmekhol’s cinematic journey combines intimate interviews with her personal and poetic meditation on environmental devastation, resistance and renewal.
Director Denise Zmekhol will be offering a Q&A after the showing of the film.
