The Dusk of the Amazonas

The Dusk of the Amazonas is a documentary which denounces the history of colonialism in the Amazon. The film investigates Roger Casement’s expedition across the Amazon on a mission to expose the exploitive conditions of the rubber industry. Thanks to his reports, the British diplomat helped stop the genocide where over 30,000 indigenous were killed at the beginning of the XX century.
