Within the Amazon Basin, there are a total of 35 communities living across 16.4 million acres of conservation areas of rainforest. The river is the only means of access to these communities. No Meio do Rio Entre as Árvores captures images of an abundant world, full of beauty, but where predatory economic exploration has left its marks.
