ETERNAL AMAZON (Amazônia eterna)

Belisario Franca / Brazil / 88 min / 2013 / Portuguese with English subtitles 

The Amazon is a vast laboratory for sustainable experiments that are unveiling new relationships among human beings, corporations, and this natural heritage that is crucial for life on the planet. This is where the guidelines are being drawn up for a new global economic model: the green economy. With astonishing cinematography and soundtrack, Eternal Amazon presents a critical analysis of how the world’s largest tropical rainforest is understood and utilized. Exploring the Amazon’s five million square kilometers–home to 20% of the world’s freshwater reserves–the film asks whether it is possible for humans to make sustainable use of the rainforest, featuring nine successful projects for sustainable forest use that directly benefits the local population and fosters good economic partnerships. Activities such as agriculture, fisheries, animal husbandry and extraction are unraveled under the support of experts, including economist Sergio Besserman, ecologists Bertha Becker and Virgilio Viana, as well as testimony of Amazonians. It portrays the daily lives of the forest people as the guardians of this great natural heritage that could last into eternity, if properly managed.
