by Denise Zmekhol

Children of the Amazon, film poster
Runtime: 72′

A stunning documentary by Denise Zmekhol on the environmental and emotional decimation exacted upon the Surui and Negarote tribes of the Amazon rainforest as a result of logging and highway development.

”…a moving and powerful film…in the most sympathetic way possible, highlights the human side of rainforest destruction, which is all too easily forgotten as we confront the challenges of global climate change.” – HRH Prince Charles.

The film was followed by a Q/A with Denise Zmekhol, Director of the film who traveled from Brazil for the screening; Chris Vanden Bilcke – Head of UNEP Liaison Office to the EU
