Tapajós Treasures

Tapajós Treasures

The documentary series is a great trip that, as the name suggests, will take us to the «tapajós River Treasures». The richness of the regions comes from it's fauna and flora, but also from the villagers from Brarra de Săo Manoel, on the northernmost region of Mato Grosso, in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest, in Brazil.
Those are the characters that bring their memories and experiences, allowing us to know the past, present and future of that place. Barra de Săo Manoel have risen from the junction of the Juruena River and Teles Pires River (or Săo Manoel River), whose extremely high amounts of water create the tapajós River, region with unique beauty know as the most hidden and preserved part of the amazon biome.
The village started growing, acting as community of rubber tappers from the Brazilian northeast and indigenous groups from the Munduruku, Apiaká and Kayabi ethnicities. Nowadays, this village is majorly composed by strongly mixed-race people with indian and northeastern origins. They survived on the riverside, challenged by life's misfortunes, until the recreational fishing reached those waters. Most of them admit it was the best thing that has ever happened on the region on the last couple of years. Many locals live due the recreational fishing, and achieved better ways of living because of it.
But who are those people? What do they tell us about the migrational flow on the Amazon and Brazil in general? What does the future holds to the Tapajós? This series aims to answer these questions.
