In 2016, film-maker Reza Pakravan undertook a 4000-mile journey across the Amazon rainforest to discover the fragility of the 'lungs of the planet' and the toilsome lives of those who call it home. Joined by journalist Pip Stewart, they set out to investigate the perils faced by the Amazon, and to experience the greatest rainforest on earth in a unique and breath-taking expedition along the Trans-Amazonian Highway.
Transamazonica is a revelatory account of the 21st century Amazon, exposing with insight and emotion the very real dangers which the area currently faces.
