This documentary film focuses on the Amazon River basin's tropical rain forest, the largest and most spectacular of its kind in the world. In it, millions of years of evolution have created a profusion of flora and fauna unrivalled elsewhere on Earth. The film shows the wealth of plant species and the extraordinary varieties of fauna that are bound in intricate webs of co-evolution with the river and the rain forest, and the aboriginal peoples who live attuned to their surroundings. A timely film, given the heightening controversy over the massive encroachments that are endangering this area.
