The Dusk of the Amazonas

The Dusk of the Amazonas

Through the lives of three inhabitants of the Peruvian Amazon, this documentary investigates the history of colonialism in the region and questions the present, still marked by the voracious exploitation of the natural resources and the slow agony of the region’s cultures.

The characters are descendants of the ethnic groups most affected by the bloody era of rubber extraction. As they look to tell their own version of the story, they follow the footsteps of their ancestors, undoing the forced migration of their grandparents and rebuilding their identities.
