‘Amazonas – A Sustainable Life in the Rainforest’. Numerous climatic, political and civilising changes have a great impact on the settlements in the central Amazon area. Step by step the local people develop their own mentality regarding a sustainable and well-adapted life in the heart of the Amazon rain forests. In 2012, the film maker Thomas Miklautsch from Carinthia, together with his assistant Anja Krois, set off to travel for several months along the Amazon, from the Columbian Leticia to Rio Ampiyaco near Iquitos in Peru, always in harmony and sensitive exchange with the local Indian tribes. By telling some life-stories of several fascinating characters there, the film maker portrays the authentic current situation in this area.
