/Apaporis–in-Search-of-One-River

 

Synopsis: A journey through the magical and presently war-locked Apaporis River in the Northwest Amazon that seeks to create awareness and demand respect for our eco- and ethnosphere. This documentary highlights the magical beauty of the Apaporis and Jirijirimo landscape and the ancestral knowledge of the indigenous communities about medicinal and psychotropic plants; also exploring how the Amazon Jungle has of late become the scenario for external dynamics like drug trafficking, drug eradication initiatives and political kidnappings. It reveals the FARC guerrilla siege of Mitu, gate to the Northwest Amazon, and recent events like the liberation of 14 prisoners held by the FARC including three American contractors and kidnapped presidential candidate, French-Colombian citizen Ingrid Betancourt.
