This film tells the story of Silvino Santos, the Brazilian filmmaker who first captured and projected images of the Amazon at the dawn of the century. In 1913, as the Amazonian rubber boom was at its peak, Silvino Santos made the first of nine feature-length documentary films that chronicled a unique time and place in Brazilian history. In his lifetime Santos was acknowledged as a pioneer of Brazilian cinema and he acquired mythic status in the jungle region. (www.afcy.org)
