Exploring attempts to colonize the Brazilian Amazon during the 20th century, Amazon – Inheritance of Utopia analyzes records dating back a hundred years, highlighting facts, initiatives and actions with ecological, demographic, political and economic changes and impacts. For perhaps the first time, a documentary offers an objective view of human interventions in the Brazilian rainforest, highlighting successes and failures without resorting to modern clichés of apocalyptic or paradisiacal visions. This documentary reveals the problems and possibilities of this region, which today still constitutes a challenge for Brazil as it moves into a new century.
