In the midst of the Government's disrespect for our forests and native peoples, the fires that have devastated the Amazon in recent months and the dehumanization of our relationship with Planet Earth, the documentary Front Line seeks, on the one hand, to warn of the destruction of the Amazon, and on the other, to present all the beauty and richness of traditional indigenous culture. This contrast represents the reality in which we live today and is a warning so that we can act while we are still in time.
Protection of our forests. Respect for the native peoples.
